Gallery: The Solar Impulse Undertakes an Incredible Trans-Switzerland F...


We here at Inhabitat are huge fans of the Solar Impulse, an incredible zero emission aircraft powered by 12,000 solar cells located on its wings. Over the last year we’ve cheered this stellar solar plane on through its impressive trials –  from its first flight to its first ascent out into the night sky – but little did we know that the best was yet to come. In its latest challenge, the Solar Impulse is performing a lengthy, landmark tour of its fine home country of Switzerland, even sharing the same airspace as other commercial aircrafts!
