Connect: Sun, Orbit, Transit (2008)

Episode 8
Available worldwide

We take a look at Split Second, the next car-racing game from Disney Interactive Studios. Concerns about carbon emissions have prompted a German company to rethink how we use energy in shipping, coming up with an invention called a Beluga Sky Sail that uses wind to supplement a ship's propulsion system. Swiss engineers are developing the technology to allow a solar-powered flight around the world. Telescopes and radar track the growing cloud of orbiting space debris, which poses danger to astronauts, satellites, and even people on the ground. Check out Perth's new high speed rail network, which can complete the 72-kilometer journey between Mandura and Perth in just 48 minutes.
