Ask an Explainer

Q:

How can you make a paper air plane that can fly long distances like a jet?

A:

Airplanes need to be powered so they can go the distance: You need thrust, so you need to find an engine for your paper plane; an engine that is light, and will not ignite the paper. The big problem is that paper is not a suitable material for long distance flight.
