{2012-06-04}   Solar Impulse

The gigantic, but ultra-lightweight dimensions of this revolutionary airplane – capable of flying day and night without fuel – are its trademark feature.

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 one of its take-offs, propelled silently by its four electric motors, inspires us to consider using clean, new technologies to free our society, little by little, from dependence on fossil energy.
