A long-term issue for the airline industry is the need to tackle their fossil emissions, which contribute to >2% of global emissions.

How do we get this industry to net zero, and is it even possible? The conventional “tube and wing” design can only be optimized so far. While novel designs are showing promise to “break the mold” of conventional aircraft and offer a way to incorporate lower energy density propulsion systems.
