A Contribution to the Future

airplane propelled by solar energy,

An airplane propelled by solar energy, capable of flying either day or night, able to circle the globe without an ounce of fuel or pollution? It may sound like an impossible task, but Swiss company Solar Impulse have begun testing their first long-range solar airplane.  So far so good. We look forward to hearing more news later this year when they start testing night flying that will hopefully lead into a round the world flight scheduled in 2012
