Solar Impulse around the world

It`s spring and the time for the second part of the trip around the world. Now the photovoltaic airplane Solar Impulse made test flights over Hawaii. It prepares to continue on its record-breaking journey. The batteries became overheated during the plane's initial ascent after take-off in June 2015 from Nagoya, Japan, en route to Hawaii on the seventh and most challenging leg of its circumnavigation attempt.
