Solar-powered plane comes home after 4,000-mile odyssey

Solar-powered plane comes home after 4,000-mile odyssey.
Solar Impulse's unprecedented intercontinental trip ends where it began, in Switzerland. A unique airplane has just completed a 4,000-mile journey, making the first solar-powered intercontinental round-trip air journey.
Traveling between Europe and Africa, the Solar Impulse experimental solar airplane landed in Payerne, Switzerland at 8:30 p.m. local time (2:30 p.m. ET) on Tuesday.
The odyssey began two months ago, on May 24. This wasn't a test to see how fast the plane could make the trip, but to assess its endurance and reliability. The project was also aimed at raising public awareness about energy issues. "The goal of this airplane is not just to go from one point to another, but to fly as long as we wish, promote renewable energy and ambitious
energy policies," pilot Bertrand Piccard, founder of Solar Impulse, said during the intercontinental flight.
