Daryl Chapin was one of three credited with inventing the solar cell at Bell Labs in 1954. He was related to our neighbor and so I saw, as a mere sprout, the humble beginning of the solar car industry. He had a 1/10th scale car with cells on the roof and when he shone a flashlight on it it would move and when he took it away it stopped.
