Solar Plane to Go Around the World

Exciting news in solar power this week as preparations continue for the first around the world voyage of a plane powered only with solar energy. The plane has a gigantic wingspan with solar panels atop. These collect energy during the day which powers the plane with the excess stored in batteries to power the plane at night. 

The journey is set to begin in March and end late July or early August.
