Through a solar powered air plane, named The Solar Impluse, people are trying to prove the sun's energy is good and useful practical idea. This solar powered plane will take off from Switzerland and will try to fly for 24 hours without stopping. The sun provides us with energy everyday and someday every plane will use it. The time goal is to see if its solar cells can power it for a single, non stop 24 hours flight. Hopefully it will be a success!
