Here's to the pioneering human spirit! People who did what 'experts' said was impossible. This puts solar aircraft and solar powered travel in a new light. Reliability, zero emissions and performance... although not stunning, perhaps enough to power your home reliably inexpensively and cleanly. This is uber disruptive in that our concept of giant power generating plants has just been eclipsed by solar panels on our roofs and storage batteries in our garages... I think this fragile little plane just changed the world. -That's what I think!

|On final... a beautiful thing. Doesn't this image evoke a sort of harmony as no burnt jet fuel is cast over the green crops below on this approach... an inspiring glimpse into the future. Thank you Solar Impulse Team!|
“Renewable energy also creates more jobs than other sources of energy – most of these will be created in the struggling manufacturing sector, which will pioneer the new energy future by investment that allows manufacturers to retool and adopt new technologies and methods.” - Jay Inslee
