Solar powered aeroplane. Computer artwork of a propellor-driven solar powered aeroplane. This plane does not carry a pilot or passengers. It is designed to fly at high altitudes and perform surveys or telecommunications. Multiple planes would remain permanently airborne for use in environmental monitoring or mobile phone coverage in remote areas. Aircraft such as this may one day offer a cheap alternative to satellites.
