Renewable Energy World
Someone once said: “Your vocation in life is where your greatest joy meets the world’s greatest need.”
Without question, the pilots of Solar Impulse, Dr. Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg, are living proof of that. These two great adventurers made solar and aviation history last weekend when Solar Impulse touched down at New York’s JFK Airport.
For several months, millions of Americans, and millions of others from around the world, watched and cheered as this majestic 208-foot-wide, carbon fiber solar plane – with the wingspan of a Boeing 747 and the weight of a Volkswagen – glided gracefully across the sky.
