Climate explained: why don't we have electric aircraft?
Climate explained: why don’t we have electric aircraft?
Electric cars, trains, trams and boats already exist. That logically leads to the question: why are we not seeing large electric aircraft? And will we see them any time soon? Aeronautical engineering academic, Dr Dries Verstraete explains. Why do we have electric cars and trains, but few electric planes? The main reason is that it's much simpler to radically modify a car or train, even if they look very similar to traditional fossil-fuel vehicles on the outside.

Greenland is melting but it’s the tip of the iceberg
Rapid melting of glaciers in Greenland is causing major concern but we know from many years of research that the problem is much more widespread. On the opposite side of the world, Antarctica stores enough frozen water to raise global sea levels by 58 metres. Our researchers have been working with an international team of scientists to build up the most complete picture to date of ice melting.
