Documentary: Point Of No Return
Soaring at 28,000 feet without a drop of fuel, nothing is predictable. Not the weather, not the technology. And certainly not the fate of a man, alone for five days in a fragile, first-of-its-kind aircraft with nothing but ocean below.
Point of No Return takes viewers behind the headlines of the first solar-powered flight around the world, where two courageous pilots take turns battling nature, their own crew, and sometimes logic itself, to achieve the impossible. Not just to make history, but to inspire a revolution.
"Think we can't take on big technological challenges any longer? Believe our energy conundrum is hopeless? Point of No Return restores faith in human ingenuity, international cooperation, and our ability to reach new frontiers in sustainable energy. It is sure to inspire students in engineering as well as well those in the environmental sciences." Brian Black, Professor of History and Environmental Studies, Pennsylvania State University - Altoona
