Photo: U solar racer heats up

Continuum, which boasts cutting edge solar car technology, is competing this week in the Panasonic World Solar Challenge in Australia. U-M students on the team developed a "solar concentrator system," which uses U-shaped mirrors to track the sun throughout the day and intensify its rays. This was the team's answer to new rules requiring fewer square meters of solar cells. See related story, Mirror technology propels 2007 Solar Car team> (Photo courtesy U-M Solar Car Team)
