Introduction to Solar Ship: The Solar Powered Aircraft

Solar Ship previews its first three commercial solar-powered aircraft that require no roads, no fuel, no infrastructure. By crossing airships with airplanes, Solar Ship is creating craft that can carry heavy loads long distances with a tiny carbon footprint. Filled with helium, they soak up rays from the sun to provide the energy for forward motion and fulfill its original design challenge – carry 1,000 kilograms (2,205 lbs) of payload 1,000 kilometers (621.4 miles).
