Bertrand Piccard explains how to fly non-stop around the world
Bertrand Piccard, Explorer and Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation flew around the world non-stop. It was the longest flight ever – 20 days, non-stop, without refueling.
"When you believe that something is impossible, try to analyze what is the paradigm that limits the evolution, the paradigm that limits us to go further," says Piccard. "For me, that paradigm was fuel."
"If the specialists think it is impossible, it is only because they are unable to get rid of what they have learned…You have to go to people who do not know it is impossible because they will give you the solutions."
