Road trial for former astronaut’s Superbus

The so-called Superbus, the brainchild of former Dutch astronaut Wubbo Ockels, will have its first trial on normal roads in June.

The experimental trip will take place on a 27km stretch of motorway between Harlingen and Leeuwarden in Friesland. The bus can travel at speeds of up to 250kph.
