On arrival, the passengers will head into a conference where they will present their ideas to, among others, the UN. The project might be a great idea — or it might be a boost for old fashioned air travel against videoconferencing, and it looks to be solving a very taking a "first world" problem (how to extract talent from the developing world)."
