I’m leaving on a solar plane

Okay, I’m not leaving on a solar, or jet plane for that matter, but I’ve always liked the song. Anyway, according to Jess Zimmerman over at the Grist, the Solar Impulse is an all-solar plane that’s flying from Phoenix to Washington, D.C. this year and it turns out that it’s making a stop in St. Louis around late May or Early June.

I’m definitely planning on taking my kids up there to see it. If you can’t make it or it’s not making a stop in your town, then the next best thing to do would be to read Jess Zimmerman’s article entitled “Watch a Solar Plane Fly Across America“. Along with the article is a live map.

Up, up and away!
