    New aircraft rises 'like a balloon'

    She looks a little like an airship, except airships don't have wings.


    "It's a proper aeroplane," says the UHI's Professor Andrew Rae.


    As the project's chief engineer, he has overseen the integration of Phoenix's systems.


    "It flies under its own propulsion although it has no engines," he says

    Does it have to look like a bomb?
    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    That looks promising


    "Critics point to the fact that the wind doesn't always blow - the intermittency problem - making this form of renewable energy unreliable.

    But winds at higher altitudes - above 500m (1,640ft) - blow stronger and more consistently. An influential 2012 study from California's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory found that high-altitude winds alone could provide 100 times the global energy need."
