  13. About Solar Impulse-2

    Solar Impulse is the only airplane of everlasting continuity, able to fly day and night on solar power, without any fuel. It is a 2.3 tonne plane with top sped of 87 miles per hour (mph) and can carry just one passenger and emits precisely zero Carbon Dioxide (CO2).

    Solar Impulse -2 has a wingspan of 72 meters and 3.5 meter wide. This length allows it to support 17000 solar panels that help it to produce enough electricity to power the flight and to charge 633 Kilogram lithium batteries…

    The solar-powered plane named Solar Impulse-2 took off to round-the-world. Solar Impulse-2 will be the first round-the-world flight powered by solar power. The objective of this round-the-world voyage is to create awareness about replacing old polluting technologies with clean and efficient technologies.

    Solar Impulse -2 during its 12-leg journey of round-the-world will cover 35000 kilometer and will stop at Mandalay, Myanmar and Chongqing; Ahmedabad and Varanasi, India; Nanjing, China and Muscat, Oman. After traversing the Pacific Ocean via Hawaii, it will fly across the US pausing in three locations namely New York City at John F Kennedy airport and Phoenix.

    In the final leg, after traversing the Atlantic Ocean, it will make a pause in North Africa or Southern Europe before arriving back in Abu Dhabi. Solar Impulse is expected to complete its journey of 350000 km in five months and it will be piloted by Swiss pilots Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg.
