Solar Impulse 2: We Love To See You Hit The Sky

“Solar Impulse 2 is the only airplane of perpetual endurance, able to fly day and night on solar power, without a drop of fuel.”

The Solar Impulse 2 is a newer version of the original aircraft, with a wingspan that measures 236 feet (72 meters) – wider than a Boeing 747’s wingspan. It carries 17,000 solar cells that allowing the aircraft to fly almost indefinitely without fuel. The Solar Impulse 2 weighs just 5,070 pounds (2,300 kilograms), less than a Toyota Tundra pickup truck, according to company officials.

The Solar Impulse 2 made its maiden flight on June 2nd. Since then, it has completed 11 successful test flights. The plane’s predecessor, Solar Impulse 1, became the first solar airplane ever to fly through the night. The plane undertook successful solar-powered flights from Switzerland to Spain and Morocco as its first intercontinental flight, and conducted a multi-stage flight across the USA in 2013. The Solar Impulse 1 is credited with eight Federation Aeronautique Internationale World Records, including absolute height: 9235 m (30300 ft); duration: 26 hours, 10 minutes, 19 seconds; and free distance: 1506.5 km (936 miles).

 Founded by Piccard and Borschberg, the gigantic dimensions of this ultra-lightweight revolutionary airplane are to be capable of flying day and night without fuel. To build it, the whole team had to push back the frontiers of knowledge in materials science, energy management and the man-machine interface. Every single one of its takeoffs, propelled silently by its four electric motors, inspires the team to consider using clean, new technologies to free our society, little by little, from dependence on fossil energy.

 Our airplane is not designed to carry passengers, but to carry a message, said Bertrand Piccard.

From the very start of the project, we understood that our primary goal was to save energy, André Borschberg added.

The Solar Impulse Project has done more than the role for which it is designed. It has provoked the discussions amongst the highest political and economic authorities about technological solutions to help achieving the world’s agreed CO2 reduction targets. It also allows tackling the problem of resistance to change, which risk locking us for too long into the dangerous and costly consequences of old habits. The Solar Impulse Project is an example of what clean technology is capable of achieving.

 

We would love to have your opinions on Solar Energy Technologies and the future of Solar Aviation.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However think about if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its niche. Good blog!

    I do like the manner in which you have framed this problem and it does indeed present me personally a lot of fodder for consideration. However, through what precisely I have seen, I just wish when other responses pack on that people keep on point and in no way embark on a tirade regarding the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this superb point and whilst I do not concur with it in totality, I value your standpoint.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    In the great design of things you actually secure an A+ just for effort and hard work. Exactly where you actually lost me was on all the particulars. You know, it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more accurate at this point. Having said that, permit me inform you exactly what did work. Your text is actually rather powerful which is possibly the reason why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can certainly notice a leaps in logic you make, I am not convinced of how you appear to unite the ideas which in turn help to make the conclusion. For now I will subscribe to your point however wish in the near future you actually connect the dots better.

    Throughout this grand pattern of things you’ll get a B- with regard to effort and hard work. Exactly where you actually lost us was first in the facts. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more true right here. Having said that, allow me say to you just what exactly did give good results. The writing can be incredibly persuasive which is probably the reason why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can easily see a leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really certain of exactly how you seem to unite your ideas which inturn produce the final result. For the moment I shall yield to your issue but wish in the future you actually connect your facts much better.
