    Solar 'ready for take-off'

    News, Published on 05/05/2013

    » The departure on Friday of a solar-powered plane with no backup fuel from San Francisco's Moffet Field in the first leg of a cross-country US trip is a dramatic demonstration of how far solar energy has come. The HB-SIA Solar Impulse arrived in Phoenix, Arizona, early yesterday morning (US time) after a 19-hour flight. The plane is able to fly long after the sun goes down or in cloudy weather because the nearly 12,000 solar cells on its wings charge an array of lithium-ion batteries in gondolas that hang below the wings, and these power four electric motors. The craft is being piloted by Bertrand Piccard, the first person to circumnavigate the globe in a hot-air balloon in 1999 and a co-founder of the Clean Generation Initiative to encourage the adoption of sustainable energy technologies, and a pair of Swiss pilots. In the coming weeks the plane will make flights to Dallas, St Louis, Washington DC and finally New York City amidst a PR campaign to promote solar energy.

    News, Published on 05/05/2013

    » In yesterday's "PostBag", Barry Wood asks why the BTS is charging non-Thais over 60 more than Thais over 60, given that the MRT does not. I am also over 60, a resident of Thailand for 23 years, and would suggest a very straightforward answer: The BTS simply believes they can get away with such discrimination, exactly as national parks, museums, historic sites and many other attractions, not to mention tuk-tuks, taxis and some restaurants, also are extorting money from non-Thais with a flagrant double pricing strategy.
