Go Glider Go

An endurance record has been set. A seaglider 144 has covered over 5500km in 292 days. I don't know much about marine gliders but it looks pretty good going in my eyes. Their tag line is "half a knot on half a watt".

Not so good going is the slick in the Mexican Gulf. The GeoEye-1 satellite shows the oil streaks very clearly on this image.
