1 In a related story, the Department of Energy would like for all Americans to commute to work tomorrow with no fuel. Czars and regulators in Washington are working relentlessly day and night to make this happen!

2 If it did make it what would it prove. It can't carry anything heavier than a butterfly.

3 I heard this talked about and there was discussion about was it going to be one continuous flight (meaning they would have to fly at night and thus would have to have batteries to charge during the day flying)

But this says first "leg" -- which sounds like they are going to be making stops (like at night ???)
