Thank you for your Climate CoLab contest entry. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the Climate CoLab site.
We, the Judges, have strongly considered your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, we have chosen to not advance it to the next round of competition. Feedback from the Judges, along with our ratings, have been posted to the “Evaluation Results” section of your proposal and sent to you in a separate email.
The judges comments:
- There are some concerns as to the viability of commercial solar powered aircraft. By conducting some first order calculations, the judges do not believe that commercial solar powered aircraft are viable in terms of the energy produced by solar cells.
- Secondly, the proposal is a great literature review of the current state of solar aircraft. However, the proposal would need to develop its own concepts or twist on the solar aircraft concept in order to be advanced.
We encourage you to keep developing your proposal. Transfer it to a Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal.”
We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Semi-Finalists and Finalists, and even volunteer to join one those teams if you have relevant expertise. During the voting period, you can help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal to those contests as well.
Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.
Note: The decisions of the Judges are final. If you have questions, please contact the Climate CoLab staff email@example.com.
