Earlier today, Grand Duke Henri welcomed Bertrand Piccard, Swiss balloonist and one of the minds behind Solar Impulse, the first successful round-the-world solar powered flight, at the palais grand-ducal. Mr. Bertrand was accompanied by Lucien Hoffmann, director of the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). The cour's press release stated that Mr. Bertrand in a long-time friend of the grand ducal couple - I think I actually saw him at Princess Marie-Gabrielle's wedding this weekend - and that he is currently in Luxembourg for this year's Life Cycle Management (LCM) conference. The Grand Duke and Prince Louis will among its guests tomorrow.
