9. The pilot that created the “Solar Impulse” project
In June 2012, The Solar Impulse, an aircraft powered entirely by solar power, made its epic journey across the Atlantic. But that’s not all, the coolest part of the Solar Impulse mission was how easy it was for anyone with an Internet connection to put themselves in the cockpit of the aircraft. When users visited SolarImpulse.com, they were greeted with a wide array of ways to track the flight, live video feeds from inside and outside the aircraft and breathtaking views of Solar Impulse — all in real-time.
