The first round-the-world solar powered flight has been completed, after the Solar Impulse aircraft touched down in Abu Dhabi.
Bertrand Piccard piloted the plane for a final time, steering it safely from the Egyptian capital Cairo to the UAE.
He has been taking turns at the controls with Swiss compatriot Andre Borschberg, with the mission aiming to promote renewable energy.
It brings to an end a voyage that began in Abu Dhabi on 9 March last year.
"The future is clean. The future is you. The future is now. Let's take it further,'' Mr Piccard said, arriving into Abu Dhabi to cheers and applause.
The 17-stage journey covered some 42,000km, taking in four continents, three seas and two oceans.
This flight has been long in coming. Scientists have known the power of the sun to produce "free" energy for decades now. Humanity could have been weened off carbon fuels at least 40 years ago and this would have save untold human lives in wars over the Middle East Oil and in massive irreparable damage to planet Earth.
Why the delay? You might well ask! For the very reasons I listed above....the cabal wants/needs wars, mayhem, blood and death. It's the fuel the demonic forces feed off of. Additionally, the greed of their henchmen on earth covet the filthy lucre they make as gatekeepers of oil and carbon fuels, the "official fuel" of the planet.
It's not an accident that humans get carbon fuels by digging deep into the dark earth, disturbing water routes, and earthquake zones. All these are additional causes of mayhem and death. We could and should be reaching towards the sun...the old god "Sol" instead...for free, clean and very powerful solar energy. But the big drawback to solar power is the fact that it is free....everyone can afford it and no one can horde or control access to it. THAT's why scientists have been dragging their feet over it.
Here are some news stories about the emergence of solar power. A US state recently set a record by powering 6 million homes with solar energy. And Chile has so much solar power, it's giving it away! Australian scientists recently invented solar panels that can be printed off a 3D printer...you could paste them on a car and have it run on solar power. When my family and I were in Hawaii a few years ago, we learned that the State government was trying to restrict and discourage more hook-ups to solar power because people were able to live "off the grid" and the state power coffers were being negatively affected. That's what it's all about, folks. If they can't control it and charge you an arm and a leg for it...they don't want you to have it.
But you know what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object....eventually, solar power will win out. Universal use of solar power will bring the dawn of a new era for humanity. Heck...I feel like building a Temple with an altar to worship the Sun Gawd already!
