MOUNTAIN VIEW, Ca (AP) -

It only tops out at 40 miles per hour, but a solar-powered plane is expected to fly from California to New York without a drop of fuel. It's powered by photovoltaic cells. Weather permitting, Solar Impulse will leave a NASA research center in California next week. It will make week-long stops at major airports along the way for tours.
