The Solar Impulse has become the first aircraft to circle the globe powered by the sun, after landing in Abu Dhabi on the last leg of its journey, where it first took off on an epic 25,000-mile (40,000-kilometer) journey that began more than a year agoSince its March 2015 take off, the Swiss-engineered Solar Impulse has made 16 stops across the world without using a drop of fuel to demonstrate that using the plane’s clean technologies on the ground can halve the world’s energy consumption, save natural resources and improve the quality of life.

The journey took in four continents, three seas, and two oceans. The longest leg, a 8,924km (5,545-mile) flight from Nagoya in Japan to Hawaii, US, lasted nearly 118 hours and saw Mr. Borschberg break the world record for longest uninterrupted solo flight. Mr. Piccard and Mr. Borschberg have been working on the Solar Impulse project for more than a decade.

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Name the aircraft which has become the first aircraft to circle the globe powered by the Sun?
