The Rosetta spacecraft, currently orbiting Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, spotted 120 bright, reflective spots on the surface of the comet that were at least a few meters in size. While their composition is still being examined, scientists noted the spots tend to appear in areas that are shaded by the sun.
A plane powered by the sun's rays landed in Hawaii Friday after a record-breaking five-day journey across the Pacific Ocean from Japan. The single-seated aircraft landed at a small airport outside of Honolulu. The Solar Impulse 2 aircraft completed the entire journey without fuel, running off of stored energy at night. The project, which began in 2002 and is estimated to cost more than $100 million, is aimed at highlighting the importance of renewable energy and the spirit of innovation.
