Jules_Verne_750In 1873 Jules Verne published the novel “Le tour du monde en quatre-vingt jours” betting that new means of transportation make it possible to travel around the world in 80 days. At the time this seemed science fiction using power steamers and ‘high-speed’ trains. Today, with modern technology this is no longer a challenge but the novel still inspires adventurers all over the world. Now our world of mobility is facing new challenges and solutions seems science fiction; hydrogen powered cars, battery electric vehicles, solar boats and planes. A great start for a new adventure.

“Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real.”
Jules Verne
