The Wright Question

The Wright Question

Orville and Wilbur Wright revolutionized “the flying problem”. They made their first flight on December 17th, 1903. The Wright brothers‘ breakthrough was their creation of a three-axis control system which remains standard on fixed-wing aircraft more than 100 years later. For decades man had looked up at the sky and dreamed of travelling with flight, and just outside of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina two brothers were flying…but how far did they fly?

The answer is approximately 4 miles (6 km). Yet most folks don’t remember this fact, because asking how far they flew is not the right question. The question they sought to answer is: can a human reliably pilot an aircraft powered by an engine?

A new question has recently emerged which also has the potential to alter how humanity travels: can automobiles travel using only sunshine as fuel?

Project Griff proves the answer is a resounding “YES!” Having already been charging with nothing but solar power for months, the almost 10-ton truck recently moved all the appliances and furniture for a client of a local moving company.

#ProjectGRIFF right after moving all the appliances and furniture across Boise using 100% solar electricity.

Now, the project is attempting a more monumental task to further prove the usefulness of solar power: circumnavigate the United States using nothing but solar electricity for fuel. The journey will begin in Idaho, go west to Oregon and then California. Griff will dip its tires on the beaches of the Pacific and begin to head due East, chasing each sunrise for more power.

The right question is how many people will go solar or help spread the news about the project?
