Here is a great way to help save our environment, “Two pioneers flying around the world in a solar airplane, to promote clean technologies.”
Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg have taken up the task to pilot the first “Round-The-World” Solar Airplane, powered only by the sun. There is no fuel or emissions emitted by this craft.
Solar Impulse appears to be the corporation behind the scenes and their intent is to “demonstrate that clean technologies can achieve impossible goals”
This is planned to be a record breaking solo flight of 5 days and 5 nights without fuel from Nagoya to Hawaii.
This plane took off 2 days ago on the 23rd of July, 2016. This “Round-the-World” Solar flight took off from Cairo International Airport at 1128PM UTC, (7:25PM EDT).
The Intent is to prove the power of clean technology and to change the world, kicking off “The Beginning of the Clean Technology Revolution”. This plane is planning on landing in Abu Dhabi,
The capital of the United Arab Emirates known for it’s oil exports, commerce and the skyline’s modern towers.
