 I read an article titled “World’s first electric autonomous cargo ship takes to the water” by Nick Lavars. This article was published in November 2021 by New Atlas. It talks about electric and autonomous transportation.

I like this article because I love working on anything solar and electric. Also, this is a topic I am very interested in because at my school we are researching solutions connected to cargo transportation. I am focusing on autonomous and solar powered vehicles for my solution to problems with cargo.

 In August a new system was put to work to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The new technology—System 002, nickname Jenny—collected over 20,000 pounds of plastic and trash. The trash is then hauled aboard the ship and it is sorted with much of the plastic becoming recycled.

Even if Jenny is successful at cleaning up, there is still much more garbage that needs to be removed. With 10 Jennys about half of the trash in the ocean could be removed in about five years. The Ocean Project hopes to have the ocean cleared of plastic and trash by the year 2040.
