Solar Impulse 2, the plane powered solely by photovoltaics, has taken off from Abu Dhabi for its challenging round-the-world trip.

The Solar Impulse 2, a reiteration of the earlier Solar Impulse 1 that successfully crossed America in 2013, has set out from Al Bateen Executive Airport at 7.15am UTC for Oman with Andre Borschberg, one of the two project’s creators aboard.

E&T news reported on this solar-powered adventure earlier today.
