Solar-powered plane takes to the skies - at the speed of a bicycle

Solar-powered plane takes to the skies - at the speed of a bicycle

You may recall that back in November I made mention of the impending test-flight of the Solar Impulse, the solar-powered aeroplane that aims to circumnavigate the planet. Well the day of its test flight has come and, I'm happy to say, seemingly gone without incident.

A slow and steady inaugural hop, one might say, but then again such an approach often wins the day. Everything looks to be on course for an attempt on a round-the-world flight (although it may take some little time at such low speeds!). Good luck to all involved in the endeavour, I say, and don't forget to keep checking this blog for updates if and when they do launch!
