Solar Impulse Project
Participate in the Solar Impulse adventure!
While waiting for the Big Day, adopt one of the 12,000 solar panels on the plane's wings. Visit the Solar Impulse website and personalize the panel with your name, a photo, your country's flag and a personal message for the Solar Impulse team.www.solarimpulse.com >
Believe in innovative solutions for the futureSolar Impulse, a fuel-free airplane, represents an incredible and innovative response to the climate challenge. This unique project brings together research, innovation and a respect for humankind and nature. Clarins supports this venture 100% and is an active partner in this philosophical, technical and educational adventure.
Loyal to its pioneering spirit, its desire to save energy resources and respect the environment—Clarins is a proud partner of Bertrand Piccard's Solar Impulse project. The idea is simple: to have an airplane take off and fly, both day and night, running solely on solar energy. The project would then carry out a worldwide 'ecology' tour in five stages, without fuel or pollution.
In 2011, the airplane (whose wingspan is equal to an Airbus but which weighs 200 times less) will take off around the world by crossing the Pacific in five days. The Solar Impulse project, beyond its technical and technological feats, represents an extraordinary example of the possibilities that bio-energies offer the world.
