Solar Impulse Across America 2013, Washington DC-VIDEO

We’ve had coverage on Solar Impulse, the sun-powered airplane from the beginning of their Across America mission 2013 which began for us on March 29 with the article: Solar Impulse to Take to the Skies Again-VIDEO.

On April 21, I was very fortunate to see the craft and meet some members of the crew at Moffett Airfield in Mountain View, California. I fell in love with this elegant solar airplane and the message of the team’s mission. See our article: On the Tarmac with the Solar Impulse Plane.

In this video — captured during the plane’s stopover in the nation’s capital — hear remarks from Secretary Ernest Moniz speak about how advancements like those at the Department of Energy are leading the way for innovations like the solar-powered plane and catch breathtaking shots of Solar Impulse in flight. More about the solar-powered plane at Energy.gov.

Solar Impulse’s unprecedented feat is a symbol of how far solar power has come and how far this clean energy source will go in the near future.
