Solar-Powered Airplane Could Deliver Medical Supplies To Africa
The Solar Ship is a hybrid aircraft that is powered by the sun and is on a mission to fly supplies to areas where they are much-needed.
The Solar Ship is a hybrid aircraft that is powered by the sun and assisted by helium. It can take off or land on an area of land the size of a soccer field, an advantage that would allow it to deliver medical supplies to remote regions that aren't accessible by road vehicles or other airplanes that need a larger space.
An Indiegogo campaign has been created to fund the travel and operating costs for Solar Ship's first mission to Africa, where it aims to make several trips picking up medical supplies from its partners and delivering them to villages in the surrounding area.
