Solar Impulse


Solar Impulse failed its mission

The Solar Impulse solar-powered aircraft will not be able to finish the round-the-world flight in time.

The technical malfunction associated with the disruption of the performance of solar batteries will take an extremely long time to be repaired, so that a round-the-world trip can not be completed before the end of this year. However, as the news agency has learned, aviation engineers are trying to eliminate the problem at the moment and still finish the air flight around the globe - perhaps not this year, but nevertheless, in their own words, this research flight will allow further improve the design of the aircraft.
