A plane developed by Solar Impulse landed Thursday morning after a 26-hour flight that was entirely powered by solar energy. Pilot André Borschberg, CEO and co-founder of the Solar Impulse project said, “I have just flown more than 26 hours without using a drop of fuel and without causing any pollution!.”
