After our #solar journey what would be the lasting impact of #solarimpulse?
The partnership that brought Solar Impulse to life showed us that what unites humanity is more powerful than what divides us

BREAKING: tentative last leg with Bertrand Piccard July 23rd at 23:00UTC #futureisclean
The MCC team has identified a weather window that could allow us to overcome the challenging high temperatures across Saudi Arabia and hopefully land in Abu Dhabi after 48 hours. For this, however, we need to be able to take off from Cairo! Conditions are tricky with winds challenging Si2’s limitations on the runway. We are therefore getting ready for an attempt, but there is a risk that we will need to postpone the flight at the last minute. A...

The flight from ‪#‎Cairo‬ to ‪#‎AbuDhabi‬ today has been postponed to a later date!
The flight from Cairo to Abu Dhabi today has been postponed to a later date. The Ground Crew was already well underway preparing the pilot and airplane for takeoff to their final destination, Abu Dhabi, when the latest wind reading was too high to take Si2 safely out of the tent and onto the runway. This flight was close to the weather limits since the beginning - any delay in the schedule could affect the timing for the rest of the flight. Ber...

From the new world of clean technology to the ancient world of solar worship #futureisclean
Today, André Borschberg’s legacy at Solar Impulse will be remembered as he closed Solar Impulse’s penultimate flight of the round-the-world tour with a flyover of the epic Egyptian Pyramids. He landed in Cairo, Egypt on July 13th at 05:10 UTC, 06:10AM CET, 01:10AM EDT after 48 hours and 50 minutes of flight from his takeoff in Seville, Spain. In one flight, the new world of clean technology met the ancient world. This flight began with a flyov...

Being able to close the loop of the Round-the-World attempt, with a take off from #abudhabi  in March 2015 and landing in #abudhabi  July 2016, underlines the #possibilities that #cleantech  and #renewables open.

BREAKING: Bertrand Piccard will takeoff July 16th at 10PM UTC to attempt #Si2's last leg #futureisclean
With our thoughts caught up in the flurry of events and the Monegasque flags flying at half-mast, it has only now dawned on us that we need to move forward with this last flight on the round-the-world tour. Bertrand Piccard will takeoff with Si2 from Cairo, Egypt on July 16th at 22:00 UTC, 11:00PM CET, 6:00PM EDT. Direction: Abu Dhabi. We are moved by this flight. A continuous criss-cross between thrill and sadness, we are finding it difficult...
