A FLYING JET OF SOLAR

Manisha Dadhich Kumari Joti, Himanshu Sirohia Rajendra Choudhary

Abstract


Solar means sun. The heat and light of the sun are abundant on earth and it can be used. It’s better to use it rather than letting it go waste. Solar panels are fitted on car to make them move on solar energy. They are fitted on the terrace of the houses and full supply of the house is generated and maintained by using the solar energy. So an experiment was started by fitting the panel on the wings of the airplanes. So we discuss the journey of this experiment from the first attempt to the successful projects till now.
