Created by Swiss ​​explorer Bertrand Piccard and Swiss engineer Bertrand Borschberg, the Solar Impulse 2 has a wingspan the size of a Boeing 747 and features more than 17,000 solar panels. In 2019, the design was purchased by U.S.-Spanish startup Skydweller Aero who plans on turning the Impulse 2 into an autonomous drone similar to an orbital satellite.
