Sun-powered Solar Impulse plane crosses Atlantic

Sun-powered Solar Impulse plane crosses Atlantic! This is so very impressive.
The sun-powered Solar Impulse 2 plane arrived safely in Seville, Spain, early Thursday, after a flight across the Atlantic Ocean. The non-stop, 4,000-mile trip began in New York City on Monday and took three days and three nights (71 hours and 8 minutes) to complete.

The Solar Impulse team said this was one of the most challenging legs in its more than year-long trek around the world without using any jet fuel or emitting pollution.

It was the first-ever electric, solar and emission-free transatlantic flight, the Solar Impulse team said.
