Solar Impulse 2

Solar Impulse 2 is attempting to fly around the world powered entirely by solar energy. It successfully took off yesterday from Abu Dhabi, and is piloted by the project co-founders Andre Borschberg, along with Bertrand Piccard. This ultra-lightweight aircraft (5,070-pounds) will cover 12 stops across the globe to illustrate the power of renewable energy and green technology, over the next five months. On the technical side, the plane boasts 17,000 solar cells that, when paired with the on-board batteries, allow it to fly day and night. If all goes as planned, Solar Impulse 2 will land in India, Myanmar, and China, before crossing the Pacific Ocean to make appearances in three US cities.
