Solar Impulse 2 begins five-day flight across the Pacific

    Solar Impulse 2 continues its journey around the world on a solar-powered airplane. Andre Borschberg flew from the airport in Nanjing, China, and is heading for the Hawaii through the Pacific Ocean.


    In March 2015, the Solar Impulse 2 solar-powered aircraft flew around the world . According to the plan, the trip includes 25 days of flight for 4-5 months with stops, during which the team will participate in many activities on the topic of renewable energy and ecology.


    For several weeks the team was waiting for a suitable weather window for the seventh flight - from Chinese Nanjing to American Hawaii across the Pacific Ocean. This flight should be a moment of truth for the entire project.. Solar Impulse 2 will overcome 8000 kilometers in five days of flight.
