February 15, 2015 — Swiss pilots Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are to attempt to fly around the world in a plane powered solely by the sun, seeking to prove that such a flight is possible without using fossil fuel. With a wingspan wider than a Boeing 747 but weighing just the same as a family car, Solar Impulse 2 is expected to complete the 35,000km flight over a period of five months, taking off from Abu Dhabi in late February or early March.
