#SolarImpulse coast-to-coast flight across the US – an annotated graphic

She’s already up, up, up in the air, as the Solar Impulse plane starts her coast-to-coast journey across the USA, so we thought this was – quite literally – “high” time to share this annotated graphic about her journey.

Her design form, necessitated by solar-panel function, may look a bit bonkers (part Playmobil glider, part dragonfly), but her ambition is real. God speed you, solar empress!
