China makes UFO – level 1

19-06-2023 07:00

The world’s first flying saucer successfully flies for the first time in Shenzhen, China. It looks like a UFO.

It takes more than three years to create the electric aircraft. The vehicle can go up and down and land on both land and water. It looks like a funny cartoon UFO. It is for tourists and shows. We don’t know exactly when people other than the pilot can fly in it. There is an amazing video of the saucer flying smoothly over a beautiful lake in Shenzhen.

This is a big step in technology. It shows that transportation in the future can be very different and exciting.

Difficult words: cartoon (an animation), step (an action), transportation (taking things and people from one place to another).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What potential uses does this technology have outside of tourism and shows?
