Us-Helios Prototype 2
This November, 1999 NASA file photo taken from the NASA Internet site 26 June, 2001 shows the solar-powered Helios prototype in flight over a lake bed at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in California. NASA plans to send the 15 million USD, solar-powered experimental plane into the skies over Hawaii sometime in July, achieving speeds no faster than a bicycle, powered by 14 electric motors not much stronger than hair dryers.
NASA has billed the unmanned, remotely piloted Helios as the first step toward an aircraft that will soar at 100, 000 feet -- or 20, 000 feet above the current record for a propeller-drive airplane and more than three times higher than commercial jets routinely travel.
