Swiss Company, Solar Impulse, creates Solar-powered aircrafts that are the wave of the future
We have all heard of solar-powered calculators and solar-powered watches, but what about a solar-powered aircraft? The Swiss company, Solar Impulse, headed by Bertrand Piccard, has developed a prototype for a solar-powered aircraft.
The aircraft, named HB-SIA, has the appearance of a glider but is as wide as a modern airliner. Solar Impulse’s solar-powered aircrafts are now being tested and prepped to be able to fly around the world.
