from The Huffington Post
"This is a historic moment for the humankind," UN Secretary Ban Ki-Moon said to the pioneer and pilot Bertrand Piccard during an Internet videoconference, few hours before the arrival of the airplane Solar Impulse in Abu Dhabi. "This landing is the start of what will come next" answered Piccard. On July 26, this unique aircraft completed a 40,000 km, round-the-world journey propelled only by the energy of sun.
