Our planet will likely look very different in the future: things we have already discovered today – like new fuels, superfast computers, robots and drones – will change the way we fly, design and live. We might even go live on other planets! Can you imagine what this future will look like?
Flying to a sustainable future
The Airbus Foundation Discovery Space’s “Flying to a sustainable future” content series introduces kids to a proven alternative fuel - named Sustainable Aviation Fuel - which can reduce lifecycle CO2 emissions compared to conventional fuel.
What is Sustainable Aviation Fuel?
Today’s jet fuel impacts the environment. A proven alternative fuel - named Sustainable Aviation Fuel - can reduce lifecycle CO2 emissions compared to conventional fuel. SAF is one of the aerospace industry’s best decarbonisation solutions which can help for the betterment of our planet. So what is sustainable aviation fuel?
Flightpath to Hydrogen
What is the smallest, lightest molecule in the universe? It’s hydrogen and there's a lot of it. In oceans, in rivers, and even in your kitchen sink! But what does it have to do with aerospace and fuel?
Kids will discover hydrogen in these videos.
What will airplanes use as fuel in the future?
Today’s airplanes use a fuel that releases a gas into the air. This is known as CO2. But too much of this gas means the temperature changes, which can cause serious problems for our planet. So what can we use to fuel airplanes instead? Batteries? Algae? Hydrogen? Yes! What do you think will power future airplanes?
Tomorrow Starts Today
The future we can imagine today can only become real if we start putting our ideas into action now!
This video series is about the future of cities, factories, space and aviation.
Cities - where we're going, we don't need roads!
Our cities are expected to get bigger and fuller in the future – so how might we get around? Maybe we’ll leave the roads behind – or below – and cross town in flying taxis. And maybe food will fly right to our doors on drones. Start designing your future city today!
