The Livingstone Project! What is it? The Livingstone Mountain Range. Dorothy Michelson Livingston. Jonathan Livingston Seagull. These all have an influence on the evolution of an idea and their importance will be discussed. There is another major component, but it doesn't fit with that motif. Critically important and yet to be revealed and may not be for years to come. In Phase 3. For the time being, the project is aimed at flying a powerless aircraft to a very high altitude. The study of mountain wave winds and harnessing of them will be key to the project. This is just the beginning. Phase 1. Phase 1 is simple. Learn to fly gliders. Get a glider license. This will take 5 years to master through Cu Nim's Outcome Oriented Training program. Phase 2 should begin after the first year of Phase 1 has begun. Phase 2 will involve the development of sensors to study the wave and upper atmosphere. To map it. Off the shelf solutions will be used where possible, but new technologies will have to be developed for certain aspects not currently being studied by others. These may be kept secret until a run for the end goal becomes feasible. For now the spirit of Jonathan Livingston Seagull will drive the project. To fly above the others. To do what others don't think about. To ascend.
