World Solar Challenge: The Musical

Oz heliowheels race for your viewing pleasure

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Video Last October, we at El Reg's Special Projects Bureau jetted off to Oz in pursuit of the World Solar Challenge – a gruelling 3,000km test of the planet's most advanced solar cars.

It took us a while to recover from the terrifying Outback ordeal – five days of hellish survival which saw us deprived of the most basic human needs, including a decent net connection and professional skin-moisturising products.

Suffice it to say, the subsequent therapy paid off, and we've finally put together a video overview of the event, which we hope gives a flavour of what the WSC's all about.

Btw, it's not really a musical, but we threw a few bars into the mix to give the vid a bit more va-va-voom. Enjoy:
