Solar Powered Plane Set To Fly Around The World




A plane powered by the sun, the Solar Impulse 2, has left Switzerland in a cargo flight bound for Abu Dhabi.

Once there, it will attempt a flight around the world, over India and China, taking in Hawaii and the rest of the US before crossing the Atlantic to southern Europe, northern Africa and completing the circle back to the UAE.

“We would like to demonstrate, with Solar Impulse, that we can today achieve incredible things with renewable energies and clean technologies,” explained Dr. Bertrand Piccard, founder of the Solar Impulse project.

“If an aeroplane can fly with no fuel around the world, can you imagine how this technologies could be used everywhere? We have today solutions, technical solutions, to divide by two the energy consumption of the world, and simultaneously create jobs and make profit for the industry,” added Piccard.
