Flying WIth Solar Power

Yes, you read correctly. A plane that flies with solar power. Amazing! Surely at some point in the near future it must be possible for us to harness enough natural energy to power the world? In the meantime, take a look at this fantastic story.

From the article
Bertrand Piccard and his crew presented the first airplane to be flying with only solar power. In the presence of the Swiss Minister for Traffic and Environment, Moritz Leuenberger, and HH Prince Albert II of Monaco, the new aircraft Solar Impulse was unveiled at the military airbase in Dübendorf, Switzerland.
