Solar Impulse’s First Intercontinental Flight Begins...

The gigantic, but ultra-lightweight dimensions of this 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.

Flight facts:

  • Pilot: André Borschberg
  • Final destination: Rabat, Kingdom of Morocco.
  • Intermediary stop: technical stopover, and change of pilot (Bertrand Piccard), in Madrid for minimum three days.
  • Scheduled departure: Payerne airfield (Switzerland) at 06:45am (UTC+2).
  • Route: Crossing the border into France via Jura at 3’600 meters. At Redoz (France), mounting to an altitude up to 8’500 meters crossing first the Massif Central and then the Pyrenees into Spain.
  • Scheduled landing: Madrid-Barajas airport around 02:00am (UTC+2), Friday 25 May.

...and they have bodies...

Maybe this isn’t a newsflash to anyone but me, but, um, the Moai “heads” on Easter Island have bodies. Because some of the statues are set deep into the ground, and because the heads on the statues are disproportionately large, many people tend to think of them as just big heads. But the bodies (generally not including legs, though there is at least one kneeling statue) are there — in many cases, underground. What’s even more interesting — there are petroglyphs (rock markings) that have been preserved below the soil level, where they have been protected from erosion.

This Is The Definitive Photography Of Earth

Unlike NASA’s Blue Marble — which is a composite made from many different photographs — this is a portrait of Earth taken in one single shot. It’s the highest resolution image of our home planet at 121 megapixels. That’s a resolution of 100km per pixel. This image was not taken by NASA or the European Space Agency. It was taken by Russia’s latest weather satellite, the Electro-L. Elektro-L is now orbiting Earth on a geostationary orbit 36,000 kilometres above the equator, sending images every 30 minutes using a 2.56 to 16.36 Mbits per second connection with ground control. The images — and the video of the northern hemisphere — combines four light wavelengths, three visible and one infrared. The orange you are seeing here is the vegetation.
