SOLAR IMPULSE – AROUND THE WORLD IN A SOLAR AIRPLANE
“The gigantic dimensions of this ultra-lightweight revolutionary airplane – capable of flying day and night without fuel – are its trademark feature.
To build it, the whole team had to push back the frontiers of knowledge in materials science, energy management and the man-machine interface.
Every one of its take-offs, propelled silently by its four electric motors, inspires us to consider using clean, new technologies to free our society, little by little, from dependence on fossil energy. “
A Librarian’s Guide to Space Tourism – 32 Resources – OEDB.org
“Today, a Virgin Galactic ticket for a seat on board SpaceShipTwo will set you back $250,000 for a suborbital flight. So far nearly 600 people have put down deposits. Alternatively, XCor is offering suborbital flights aboard the Lynx for $95,000 per flight, including medical screening and G-Force training. And if you’re looking for something more long-lasting, you might apply to become one of the first inhabitants of the Red Planet within a permanent human settlement on Mars planned for 2023.”
Disposable Drones Will Collect Data by Surfing Along with Hurricanes – IEEE Spectrum
“These robots, made of carbon fiber, are just six inches long and don’t weigh much more than an iPod Nano. Hardware on board measures pressure, temperature, humidity, location and time, all to help predict the trajectory and intensity of hurricanes. Since just one of these robots isn’t nearly enough to get a good sense of a hurricane, they’re designed to be used in swarms of tens or hundreds, collecting massive amounts of data while creating their own autonomous network.”
