On Thursday, March 28, the first U.S. solar-powered airplane will be revealed at a press conference, along with details on its cross-country flight. During the press conference, those who are watching are encouraged to tweet their questions and comments by using hashtag: #13SI.

Solar Impulse is the world’s first-solared airplane that is capable of flying during day and night without using fuel. The plane is coming to the U.S. in May and will make a cross-country flight before attempting to fly across the world in 2015. Tomorrow, a press conference will be held live to unveil the airplane and its founders and pilots will be discussing details about the plane and answering questions live via Twitter. Those attending and watching the conference can send their questions by tweeting using the hashtag: #13SI.

Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, co-founders and pilots of Solar Impulse, will discuss details about the program and flight, including information about stopover cities and challenged they think they might encounter on their journey.

The press conference will be held tomorrow, March 28, at 12:00 p.m. CST. Watching the live press conference is available to anyone who’s interested by following this link at the time of the conference: http://www.schindler.com/us/internet/en/about-us/solar-impulse-across-america.html
