After a few repairs and nine months, the solar plane flying around the world is ready for takeoff again.
"We deeply believe that we can achieve impossible and incredible things with renewable energies, like flying around the world with no fuel," a Solar Impulse pilot said.
After one of the pilots set a record for the longest nonstop solo flight, Solar Impulse had a bit of a setback. Last summer, some of the plane's batteries — used for night flight — overheated, forcing it to land in Hawaii.
