There won’t be any pilgrims aboard the Mayflower when it sails across the Atlantic in 2020. In fact, there won’t be anyone aboard the ship, as this research vessel will be entirely unmanned . The wind- and solar-powered Mayflower Autonomous Research Ship (MARS) will sail itself from Plymouth, England to Plymouth, Massachusetts on the 400th anniversary of the original ship’s journey to the new world. Unlike its namesake, this ship will have no crew at all. Read the rest of Unmanned solar-powered Mayflower research ship will cross the Atlantic in 2020
