People work on a plane. It takes them 12 years. This plane is special. It is a solar plane. It uses sunlight to fly.

A revolutionary plane made its first flight in Switzerland. The plane is as light as a car, and it is the product of 12 years of research.

The plane is not heavy. It is only as heavy as a car. It has 17,000 solar cells. These things turn light into electricity. The plane can fly during the day. It also collects energy during the day. This energy is used for night flying. The plane can fly for weeks or months. It does not need to stop.

People are testing the plane. If everything goes well, the plane will fly around the world. The flight will take five days and nights. The flight will happen in March 2015.

The plane uses the sun and only the sun to fly. It has 17,000 solar cells on its surface. It collects enough energy to fly during the day and collects energy for the night. The plane can fly day and night. It can fly for weeks and even months.

If tests are successful, the plane is going to fly around the world. The round-the-world trip will take five days and nights in March 2015.
