"Human-powered flight: why you won't be flying to work anytime soon"

Bryan Allen, prize-winning pilot of both the Gossamer Condor and
Gossamer Albatross human-powered airplanes, will speak about his
experiences of human-powered flight and discuss why, although they
both involve pedaling, bicycling and pedal-powered flight are so
fundamentally different.
