Created by Swiss ​​explorer Bertrand Piccard and Swiss engineer Bertrand Borschberg, the Solar Impulse 2 has a wingspan the size of a Boeing 747 and features more than 17,000 solar panels. In 2019, the design was purchased by U.S.-Spanish startup Skydweller Aero who plans on turning the Impulse 2 into an autonomous drone similar to an orbital satellite.

Great. Living in Leeds doesn't make it a wise decision to rely on solar power too much. This one would be a great addition though. I wish I had the lack of my friends in the USA and specifically the ones that live in Samui. They have solar panels on top of their homes and they say thousands of dollars every year while I get to pay more and more for gas and electrical bills are just going higher every year here. They were both think about this service they had buy a1solarstore.com and their crew. They didn't even pay half of the price that other companies charge and I'm top of that it was done in a couple of hours and it was ready to go. If a service like this appears here in Leeds I will definitely call them to have this new type of solar panels installed.

In all honesty it isn’t important to install solar panels on your home.

Privately owned residential Rooftop solar installations generate electricity at a much higher cost than commercial installations and saddle the homeowner with the investment costs, and responsibility for maintaining and monitoring the system.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
