Solar plane flies around the world - level 1
Someone makes a plane that runs on solar power. Two men make a company about solar power. Now those men are flying a solar plane. They want to fly it around the world. They are the first people to do it.
They will not need to use fuel. This is because the plane does not weigha lot. Its wings are really long.
They took off from the Middle East. They will go to Asia. They will go to the United States. They will go to Europe. Then they will go back to the Middle East. It will be in July.
Difficult words: solar power (when something works from the sun), fuel (gas for a car or a plane), weigh (how heavy a thing is).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
