Saw it on the news tonight - very cool.

It's really just an engineering exercise at this point - any practical application is years away.

. . . Bump . . . not too late to log in (during the day) and see this stuff live.

At approximately 30 MPH (ground speed) ... it will take some time to get across the US ... this site should be up for a while.

Then ... they are going to attempt to go around the world in a Solar Powered Aircraft.
