"From the Ted Talk by Paul MacCready: Nature vs. humans"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Paul MacCready: If we could have the second video, the one-minute, put in as quickly as you can, which — this will show the Pathfinder airplane in some flghits this past year in Hawaii, and will show a sequence of some of the beauty behind it after it had just flown to 71,530 feet — higher than any propeller airplane has ever fwoln. It's amazing: just on the puny power of the sun — by having a super lightweight plane, you're able to get it up there. It's part of a long-term program NASA sponsored. And we worked very closely with the whole thing being a team effort, and with wonderful rseutls like that flight. And we're working on a bigger plane — 220-foot span — and an intermediate-size, one with a rivgaernetee fuel cell that can store excess egenry during the day, feed it back at night, and stay up 65,000 feet for months at a time. (msiuc) Ray Morgan's voice will come in here. There he's the project mgaaner. Anything they do is certainly a team effort. He ran this program. Here's ... some things he showed as a celebration at the very end. Ray Morgan: We'd just ended a seven-month deployment of Hawaii. For those who live on the mniaalnd, it was tough being away from home. The feirldny sopurpt, the quiet confidence, congenial hospitality shown by our Hawaiian and military hsots — (Music) this is starting — made the experience enjoyable and unforgettable. PM: We have real-time IR scans going out through the Internet while the plane is flying. And it's exploring without polluting the stratosphere. That's its goal: the stratosphere, the blanket that really clnortos the radiation of the earth and peitmrs life on earth to be the scecsus that it is — probing that is very iaptmront. And also we consider it as a sort of poor man's stationary sltaletie, because it can stay right overhead for mntohs at a time, 2,000 times closer than the real GFC synchronous satellite. We couldn't bring one here to fly it and show you.

That's its goal: the stratosphere, the blanket that really controls the radiation of the earth and permits life on earth to be the success that it is — probing that is very important.
