Casa igloo

Pe o insula in Norvegia a fost construita o casa intr-un dom, care arata ca un igloo:

Placing the 25-foot-high dome around the five-bedroom, two-bathroom home gave the six-person family protection from strong winds and heavy snow loads, as well as cutting down on heating costs. The geodesic dome, which also covers a garden area, gives the family the necessary greenhouse environment to grow much of their food. Apples, cherries, plums, apricots, kiwis, grapes, cucumbers, tomatoes, herbs, squash, and melons are just some of what they can grow in an area that is without sunlight for three months a year.

Elvetienii Bertrand Piccard si Andre Borschberg au reusit in 9 Martie 2016 sa faca turul lumii intr-un avion propulsat doar de energie solara. Dupa 42.000 de kilometri, 23 de zile, 4 continente, 3 mari si doua oceane, cei doi au aterizat in siguranta in Abu Dhabi.
