Engineering firm Rolls-Royce is at the forefront of the aviation industry and is the world’s second-biggest manufacturer of airplane engines. And now, the company has done something truly incredible.
Last week, the U.K-based company tested a hydrogen-powered plane, which, according to the Guardian, is thought to be the first of its kind.
Rolls-Royce carried out the hydrogen airplane test at an outdoor site in England using a converted regional aircraft engine. This project — and its success — shows that the aviation industry is making plans to reduce its carbon-intensive activities.
