Solar-powered flight becomes reality

A solar-powered plane with the wingspan of a Jumbo Jet, weighing no more than a family car, has today landed in Japan on its way to Hawaii. Solar Impulse is a first in aviation history, has already broken records for staying in the air – and although we’re still a long way from replacing current passenger planes with solar-powered ones, this is an amazing, pioneeringly innovative step in the right direction of a clean, renewable energy future. HOT’s Zelly Restorick spreads the word about alternative energy sources that are clean and sustainable.
