Badge Up! Support Solar Impulse 2 and Join the Revolution

Did you get to see the official presentation of Solar Impulse 2, the solar airplane that will attempt The First Round-The-World Solar Flight? If you missed it, you can view all the excitement here.

Solar Impulse Is the Only Airplane of Perpetual Endurance, Able to Fly Day and Night on Solar Power, without a Drop of Fuel

The chances of succeeding at the first attempt to build a solar airplane capable of flying around the world were judged to be slim, so a more rudimentary prototype, HB-SIA, was first constructed, reports Solar Impulse. Lessons learned from this prototype are incorporated in Solar Impulse 2, the Round-The-World Solar Airplane.

Adventure is not necessarily a spectacular deed, but rather an “extra-ordinary” one, meaning something that pushes us outside our normal way of thinking and behaving. Something that forces us to leave the protective shell of our certainties, within which we act and react automatically.

Adventure is a state of mind in the face of the unknown, a way of conceiving our existence as an experimental field, in which we have to develop our inner resources, climb our personal path of evolution and assimilate the ethical and moral values that we need to accompany our voyage. –Bertrand Piccard, Initiator of Solar Impulse
