The sun-powered plane, piloted by veteran Swiss aviator Andre Borschberg, took 118 hours -- about five days -- to make the voyage from Japan to Hawaii and landed shortly after dawn at Kalaeloa Airport on the main Hawaiian island of Oahu. "Just landed in #Hawaii with @solarimpulse! For @bertrandpiccard and I, it's a dream coming true," Borschberg tweeted triumphantly after completing the most perilous part of the around-the-world odyssey.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras waves from onstage in Syntagma Square in downtown Athens, prior to delivering a speech to his supporters on July 3, 2015Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras got a rock-star welcome at an Athens rally Friday as he sought to revive support for a "No" vote in a referendum called to strengthen his hand in talks with international creditors.
