1:56 am
indefinitely. >> that's the theory. but, in fact, today's daul all-day flight over the bay area is a technical test run. they're preparing for a cross-country flight early next month and in 2015, the plan is to fly around the world relying solely on energy from the sun. >> the solar impulse weighs only 3500 pounds roughly the weight of a normal car. it has one pilot, more than 11,600 solar cells, which concert sunlight into battery power. that's why joe was saying it can go indefinitely. get the sun during the day, runs on batteries during the night. >> you sate, didn't you. >> i saw it about 7:30 tonight. kind of cool. not moving terribly fast but certainly fwans your attention. maybe it'll be new tech nothing for our kids when they fly. here's a peek outside tonight. not much in the way of sun right now, of course, it's 11:00 at night, but tomorrow morning you're going to wake up cloudy
