Frank Pompa released an article on USA Today discussed about how there has been a new solar plane that is setting records. This solar powered plane is called the Solar Impulse 2. To get an idea of this plane, the Solar Impulse 2 is considered a plane that not run on any fuel. The only source of energy it uses it solar, or the sun. This Solar Impulse 2 has made almost 22,000 miles in the air around the world.
This trip began earlier last in on March. The date to be specific was March 9 2015 in Abu Dhabi. Another trip is to be planning for some time later this summer. Although the Solar Impulse 2 has been a huge buzz, there has also been not so good times for the plane. For the entire length of the winter season, the plane was grounded in Hawaii because there was a problem with the airplane which led to the battery being fried. Because of this fried battery, the time for the five day flight from Japan to Hawaii could not be completed as planned.
Regardless of the fact, the Solar Impulse was about to stay victorious in other records such as the longest solo flight ever. The Solar Impulse 2 was also able to set world records for duration and distance in terms of solar aviation.
There are 17,248 solar cells that are used in the Solar Impulse 2. The plane also has a wingspan of over 230 feet, which is considered longer than that of the Boeing 747 which Is at 224 feet.
