New Perlan glider debuts at Wisconsin airshow
The new Perlan 2 glider joined the Airbus A350 XWB at EAA AirVenture. The pressurized, two-seat glider has been designed to fly up to 90,000 feet, at the edge of space, where it will explore the science of stratospheric mountain waves that affect the global climate. This will require the engineering of a spacecraft, according to the Perlan 2 project, with glider wings that can fly in less than 3 percent of normal air density and at temperatures of -70 degrees C.
