Solar powered plane lands in NYC after Historic Flight Across the US

Its like the Wright brothers all over again but this time with zero-carbon emissions! Love this story.

From the Guardian: “A plane entirely powered by the sun touches down in New York late on Saturday in the final leg of a journey across the US. The Solar Impulse began its trip over two months ago. The experimental aircraft has four propellers driven by energy collected from 12,000 solar cells in its wings which charge its batteries for night use”
