I would be crazy to claim that commercial aviation will soon be able to transport passengers on solar power only, but I would be stupid to say it will not. The technology doesn’t exist today, but it was also impossible to transport passengers with fuel when the Wright brothers did their first flight in 1903

We forget too often that a questioning approach opens hearts and minds, whilst certitude is an end in itself

Ballooning taught me a lot. In a balloon, like in life, we are pushed in unforeseen directions. We want to go in a direction, but the wind pushes us in another direction. As long as we fight horizontally, it is a nightmare. We need to change altitude to find a better path forward

This week in 1932, my grandfather Auguste made a second record-breaking ascent into the stratosphere with his FNRS-1 balloon!

As a medical doctor, I know that a problem is called a symptom, that a symptom has an origin and that an origin has a therapy. The problem is not the Co2. The Co2 is only a symptom of our way to burn one million tons of oil every hour, without counting gas. And this has a therapy. It is called innovation, clean technologies - the clean economy. It is profitable, it creates jobs.
