I’ve promised to post about Green planes and it is later than what I would have liked to post. Anyway the topic is interesting enough to be placed on 2 of my blogs; one of which is this one here at WordPress and the other at Blogger.

Here are the links to the 2 posts  about the competition organized by Airbus.They will highlight the various thoughts and issues on green design as well as the videos of the finalists. Click on underlined text to view.

1.Winners of the Green Plane Competition

2. Thoughts about the Competition and issues on Green Design – Wants vs Needs:

There were 5 final contestants and the winner came from Australia with the runner up team from Singapore.  What was commendable of the Singapore team was that the 3 contestants were not PhD students and 2 of them were actually undergraduates who worked on  The Solaire Voyagers: Second year Engineering students Vignesh Subramaniam, Muhammad Adil and team leader Louis Lee Wee Boon, a first year Masters student in Materials Science and Engineering.

I’ll leave you to read more about the contest !
