+ - Solar Plane Could Fly for Five Years Straight->

Submitted by Mike
Mike (666) writes "Signaling big things for the future of solar-powered travel, Aurora Flight Sciences has unveiled the Odysseus, a solar-powered concept plane that will be capable of staying aloft for five years without touching the earth. The plane consists of three wing shaped structures that are capable of automatically arranging themselves into a variety of shapes to maximize sun exposure. Researchers are currently exploring different ways the plane could store power when the sun isn't shining-possible methods include flywheels, fuel cells or even batteries."
