Finally a dream seen long ago, an energy system which can fuel the future and does not harm the nature, is a reality. Kudos to the Swiss duo Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg who became the first pilots to fly across America in a featherweight plane fueled only by the sun !!. The pair believes that fossil fuels are not to be used for transportation.
The Solar Impulse 2 flies its first segment of an attempt to circumnavigate the world on an 11-segment route starting from Abu-Dhabi. The flight is just similar to how the history of flights started from Wright brothers.
Though it can carry only two passengers right now and the speed is not convincing, it gives us the hope that there is an energy which can be harnessed for almost everything we use !!
