Best Video You'll See Today: Solar Plane Crossing the Alps


He Opens the Cockpit and Everything

We've written a few times about the Sunseeker II solar airplane, and how it was the first solar plane to cross the Alps. We had some breathtaking photos, but now we have video! Check it out below, once they take off at about 45 seconds in, it's really amazing (well, I should manage expectations... Check it out, it's okay.)

Make sure you watch it in full screen (standing away from your monitor if you need to)!
