Solar Impulse achève son tour du monde historique à Abu Dhabi

Description

L'avion solaire Solar Impulse​ a réussi l'exploit de faire un tour du monde sans utiliser une goutte de carburant. L'avion est doté de 17.000 cellules photovoltaïques qui captent l'énergie du soleil et la stocke afin que l'avion puisse voler la nuit. Ce vol historique, qui aura duré en tout 1 an et 4 mois, prouve que l'on peut trouver un moyen de voyager sans carburant. Selon Bertrand Piccard, l'un des créateurs du projet, "il y aura très bientôt des passagers sur des avions électriques qui seront rechargés sur le sol."
