Where next for solar powered flight?

asks the BBC's Jonathan Amos in a rambling, mostly cloying piece on Solar Impulse - typical stuff - when the answer can be given in one of the BBC's present favorite memes - "summary in three words" -> nowhere in particular.

I'm one of those on the Guardian.

But I'm not sure if I'm a bot.
Would I have been programmed to know?

Stewgreen "how many are bots"

More to the point - how many are us?

stewgreen, it is very brave of the Guardian to put their money where their mouth is. We can all be very grateful. Does anybody place any faith in Guardian financial advice anyway?

I see Anthony Watts has'come out' about being in a "an ugly divorce" for the last 18 months. Says it was not caused by his blog work.
"Now I’m happy to say that I’m out of the dark, and into the light again. Things are completely sorted"
He got custody of the "member of The Union of Concerned Scientists." (Kenji the dog)

Corrections for my 9am comment about the Northabout boat Follow on Twitter
- not last 10 mins , It was the last 6 mins audio
Diary was with David Hempleman-Adams ....Met office guy not Ed Crookes, but Dr Ed Brockley

- I see Steve Goddard says they have an ice Breaker with them "So far, everyone who has asked the Polar Ocean crew if they are being accompanied by an icebreaker has been blocked (on Twitter)."
There is a blogger spending a lot of time trying to debunk Heller
- Interesting both blogs quote a DavidHA blogpost which I cannot find (deleted ?)

“Partly checked the new ice charts on http://www.nsra.ru we still have no chance of getting through yet, not past the cape or through the Laptev sea. Nikolai, Our Russian Captain who is very familiar with this route, impresses on me that this is a very unusual year and normally clear, Not what I want to hear."
Other 2016 NW Passage stuff
- Cruise ship is busy doing promotion for later in season trip
- Edmonton woman joins team that aims to snorkel the Northwest Passage over 2 years !
"3,000-kilometre collaborative snorkel. "
"The expeditions in 2018-19 will cost $6 million together, she said, adding that this includes the cost of equipment and transportation. She had initially planned to do the first phase of the snorkel relay in 2017 but" ...(won't say anything about high ice preventing it)
