The world's largest solar-powered boat, "MS Turanor PlanetSolar" sails through the Corinth Canal near the town of Corinth on July 28, 2014.  The boat arrived to Greece as part of a joint archaeological project focused on underwater exploration off one of Europe's oldest human occupation sites, the Franchthi cave in the Argolid, southeast Peloponnese.
