Round the World Solar Flight Underway

The first attempt to fly around the world entirely under solar power began Monday in Abu Dhabi. If it succeeds, this will be the capstone to 13 years of research and development by the two Swiss pilots. The plane is about the size of a jumbo jet, but barely weighs more than a civilian car. I will watch this journey with interest.

Peace and Health
