The Solar Impulse 2 aircraft soared Tuesday on the second day of its marathon flight across the Atlantic, one of the most challenging legs of its historic sun-powered journey around the world. The experimental plane, which took off from New York's John F. Kennedy airport on Monday, is being piloted by Swiss adventurer Bertrand Piccard, who is expected to spend between 90 and 110 hours crossing the Atlantic en route to Spain's Seville Airport. The voyage marks the first solo transatlantic crossing in a solar-powered airplane and is expected to last up to four consecutive days, depending on weather.
