Taiwanese stadium is 100% solar-powered

Taiwan's new solar stadium is absolutely incredible. Not only does it look downright-beautiful, but it's a marvel of eco-engineering: it's 100% solar powered.

The 50,000 seat arena is covered in 8,844 solar panels that'll provide lighting for the track and field with 3,300 lux. That's a lot of juice that won't need to be generated from environmentally-damaging ways. Hopefully we'll see more and more stadiums and other structures built this way in the near future.
