Do you want to go very fast in the wrong direction,
or slowly in a good direction?
Swiss psychiatrist Bertrand Piccard went around Earth nonstop in a hot-air balloon. Now he wants to do the same thing in a solar-powered aircraft. He's been told this cannot be done.
"Cannot" and "No": These words, quite simply, are a challenge that Piccard wholeheartedly accepts.
Using his odyssey in a hot-air balloon as a metaphor for life, Piccard describes in this video how any of us might find motivation in the seemingly impossible, if only we get rid of unnecessary ballast.
As you watch, imagine that unforeseen, even pioneering, direction in which you might fly with just a change or two in altitude.
An article about Piccard's record-breaking balloon flight in Breitling Orbiter 3 is here.
