Solar Flight...

The world's first Solar powered plane just days ago, flew all night for the first time.
Solar Impulses chief pilot flew the HB-SIA prototype airplane with its 200 foot wingspan for 26 hours in perfect conditions.
The plane is powered by four electric motors. 10,748 solar cells feed the engines and store excess energy in special high performance batteries.
The Flying Tortoise might soon be landing at an airport near you...
