Futuristic Stealth Boat Will Fight Whale Hunters

You are looking at a picture of Earthrace, a new high-tech stealth vessel that will join the Sea Sheperd Conservation Society's fleet of anti-whaling ships. We've covered the Sea Shepherd previously, including the news that they've had some measurable success in their fight to stop (mostly Japanese) whaling efforts. This new boat, which can approach whaling ships virtually undetected and proceed with its mission of "disruption" should aid in those efforts. See more photos over at Life.(Thanks, Theo F.)
