Solar-powered airplane prepares for groundbreaking around-the-world flight
When Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first sustained, powered, heavier-than-air flight at the turn of the 20th century, few people who weren't science fiction enthusiasts envisioned that their small craft was the precursor of a major mode of international transportation. So it's probably best not to scoff at Solar Impulse and Solar Impulse 2, a solar-powered airplane, the first solar airplane able to sustain flight at night with a pilot on board.
