Sun Is The Future Is Getting Closer To Reaching Every Nation On Planet Earth!!! Fireworks (public domain, Author & Copyright holder: Jon Sullivan)

(Please click on red links and note magenta)

Since its inception ( January 1, 2011)  to today (January 29, 2015), there had been visitors from 184 countries and 6448 cities to Sun Is The Future (www.sunisthefuture.net), according to Google Analytics.

As a rule, we only post the data, at right, under Information (L. Visitors @ sunisthefuture.net), for data up to the Dec. 31 of each year. So, you can see that up to Dec. 31, 2014, there had been visitors from 182 countries and 6309 cities between Jan. 1, 2011-Dec. 31, 2014.

  1.  Visitors to www.sunisthefuture.net from 182 countries between Jan. 1, 2011 to Dec. 31, 2014: Google Analytics sunisthefuture.net visitors countries 182 Location 20110101-20141231
  2.  Visitors to www.sunisthefuture.net from 6309 cities (first page, between 1-5000 cities): Google Analytics sunisthefuture.net visitors cities up to 5000 of 6309 at Location 20110101-20141231
  3.  Visitors to www.sunisthefuture.net from 6309 cities (second page, between 5001-6309 cities): Google Analytics sunisthefuture.net visitors cities 5001-6309 Location 20110101-20141231

Recall that we’ve only reached visitors/viewers in 167 countries, 5085 cities by Dec. 31, 2013. We are making good progress: we’ve reached 15 additional countries  (182-167= 15) and 1224 additional cities (6309-5085=1224) during 2014.  We still have not yet reached Greenland,

We Have The Date & Location of Formula Sun 2015!

Share

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

Words just came down the wire from Evan Stumpges of American Solar Challenge, below:

“We’re thrilled to announce that FSGP 2015 will be returning to Circuit of The Americas in Austin, TX July 26-31, 2015 (Sun-Fri), with the first 3 days being scrutineering and the last 3 days being the track race. Mark your calendars! Additional details to follow as they become available.”

Please click on Formula Sun 2015 Regulations to review details of the 44-page Formula Sun Grand Prix (FSGP) 2015 Regulations.

The Formula Sun Grand Prix (FSGP) is hosted by the Innovators Educational Foundation. It promotes and celebrates educational excellence and engineering creativity. Fueled by the spirit of friendly competition and teamwork, the FSGP event champions the creative integration of technical and scientific expertise across a range of exciting disciplines (such as engineering, mathematics, sciences, businesses, in multi-disciplined experiential learning and in subsequent careers.) The Formula Sun Grand Prix (FSGP) is an annual track race that is held on grand prix or road style closed courses. This unique style of solar car racing is open to teams from universities and colleges around the world and truly tests the limits of the vehicles in handling curves, braking, and acceleration.

On years when the American Solar Challenge (ASC) is held, FSGP serves as the qualifier race for this competition. Teams must successfully complete FSGP to prove their vehicles before they are allowed to start the cross-country ASC journey. Below, you will see videos (filmed by Michael Nunamaker, interviewed, edited, and uploaded by sunisthefuture-Susan Sun Nunamaker) of some of the solar cars and students that had participated during the ASC (Americal Solar Challenge) 2012:

The racing strategy applied during the three day FSGP track event is different than the cross-country ASC event. Driver training, passing strategy, and quick pit stops are crucial for teams racing in FSGP. It’s also essential to have a diligent team member in the timing booth and follow all of the rules of the track to ensure all laps get counted.

The winner of FSGP is determined by the total number of laps completed over the three days of racing. The team that completes the fastest single lap around the track is also recognized in the awards ceremony. If your university is interested in entering the next FSGP competition, please visit the Formula Sun 2015 Regulations of the event.

Please keep in mind that the Registration Deadlines is on p.7 of the Formula Sun Regulations. We will keep you posted of its location and date of the actual race in future post:

  1. Initial registration package is due: March 1, 2015
  2. Technical Documents are due: April 1, 2015
  3. Track registration package is due: April 1, 2015

A special note for Innovators Educational Foundation: It is a 501(c)(3) organization that is supported with 100% volunteers from all across the United States. These volunteers gave/give their time freely, understanding the importance of education and the impact that real experiences have in a learning environment. For information on how you and your organization can support their effort, please visit their sponsorship page.
