Interesting solar inventions, part 2.


Sun powered planes

Is it possible to create plane, which will not produce any pollution? French designer Daphnis Fournier claims that is possible. She has developed a plane, entirely powered by electricity. Its construction is quite simple: wings of the machine would be connected with air-filled balloon, placed above body of the plain and covered by PV panels. Air in balloon would reduce energy losses. All needed energy will be gather by flying above the clouds and during the night plane will be using energy stored during the day.
