So, that solar plane is cool.   In the ninth leg of a round-the-world trip started in March, pilot Bertrand Piccard landed the Solar Impulse 2 near San Francisco, Saturday afternoon.   The airplane has the ability to fly both day and night, with its only 'fuel' being energy from the sun.   " 'It's an adventure we want to share with the public,' Piccard said."   This is indeed the stuff dreams are made of.   Piccard remembered being inspired by astronauts as a boy.  "He said if he and his team could do the same for others, 'that would be fantastic,' "     news            

Principle in the type:  "No other generation has been the beneficiary of so much knowledge, of so much experience, of so much affluence and opportunity."      Gordon B. Hinckley
