Slovenian biologist embarks on a green flight

Matevz Lenarcic, a Slovenian biologist and environmentalist, has a pretty interesting project this year: fly around the world in the lightest plane while using up the least amount of fuel. His aircraft, a Virus-SW914, weighs only 640 lbs. While he’s up in the air, the plane will record levels of black carbon, and Lenarcic will also take pictures of various sights around the world to help emphasize the importance of protecting the environment. Learn more about his goals and his project at his website, GreenLight WorldFlight.
