Solar-Powered Plane Successful Record Flight
The biggest source of energy which we Human experience everyday in our life is none other than the nearest Star. We Human named it SUN. In order to make this energy useful, human beings always trying to get maximum out of it. Invention of solar panel was the result of this search and after using solar panels to run electric appliances and cars, now planes flying on Solar Energy is also being tested. Last week, A successful flight was recorded of a solar powered plane. The Swiss pilot Andre Borschberg started his journey on this totally solar powered plane from Nagoya in Japan and landed in Hawaii after a long nonstop 5 days flight. Borschberg said, “I feel exhilarated by this extraordinary journey. I have climbed the equivalent altitude of Mount Everest five times without much rest.’’ Bertrand Piccard, the aircraft’s other pilot, said,”Can you imagine that a solar-powered airplane without fuel can now fly longer than a jet plane? This is a clear message that clean technologies can achieve impossible goals.” This solar powered plane known as Solar impulse 2 is totally powered by sun having 4 motors powering by sun and get all the charge it needs in the day so it could remain flying in the night as well.
