A solar powered plane has successfully completed a record-breaking five-day nonstop solo flight across the Pacific Ocean.

The Solar Impulse is the first aircraft to fly day and night without any fuel from Japan to Hawaii

Its Swiss pilot Andre Borschberg is attempting to circumnavigate the globe with an aircraft powered only by the sun’s energy.

And to top it all, he could only sleep for 20 minute bursts in the unheated and unpressurized cockpit.
