1st ROUND-THE-WORLD SOLAR FLIGHT
Aboard their silent airplane, able to fly day and night without fuel, Solar Impulse’s founders and pilots are making history with clean energy.
From inspiration to execution, they combined their skills and set off down the risky pathway of all explorers to push back the boundaries of knowledge, and attempt what many deemed impossible only a few years ago.
The clean technologies in their solar plane offer hope and innovative solutions in the fields of materials and lightweight structures, as well as energy storage and efficiency, for tackling the challenges of our century.
This adventure aims at inspiring all generations and encouraging leaders of opinion to commit to a more sustainable world order.
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, have set out to achieve something that still seems impossible today: the First Round-The-World Solar Flight, powered only by the sun, with no fuel or polluting emissions.
