World tour driven by solar impulse

In the beginning,flying up in the sky was a dream and it is achieved by the invention of the aeroplanes.Now its a dream to all the nations to fly up in the sky with lesser pollution and lesser global warming, I think its the time to watch our this dream coming true and it is not so far as today a solar plane ,SOLAR IMPULSE 2 took off from Abu Dhabi in the UAE(United Arab Emirates) and landed in Muscat,Oman.And this solar impulse 2 is the project by Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg.
This can be a new chapter to be written in the Aeronautical legacy as the world countries is looking forward for the low-pollutant technologies and they are starving for such new inventions which is environmental friendly in nature with higher efficiency and reliability.

This navigation around the world is done in a plane which is driven by the solar power and no fuel is used hence no carbon dioxide which causes the global warming. The flight utilises the battery stored power during the night and stores the solar energy from solar cells during the day. And it is ready to trip over the Pacific and Atlantic oceans as a part of the world tour.

Solar impulse 2 dimensions

The plane is huge and it weighs less than 5,070 pounds (2,300kg) and it is only with facility of single pilot in the cockpit.The diameter of the propellers measures 13feet(4m) and wingspan of 236feet(72m).
With the first fly the inventors are proud and happy about this as this seems to all of us a new era.We are in need of control of the pollution and in search of the sources which will utilize the solar energy and consumes maximum amount of energy which is able to finish the works as fast as the energy of fuel does ,well solar impulse 2 can be a best example for such kind and the hope for the future generations not only stays alive but it can be thrived.
