Photographer Renee Bergeron is a superhero, being the mother of 14 children. She began, as many parents do, capturing her own children in photos.

Solar Impulse 2 , the solar-powered aircraft with room for only one person, lifted off from China at 2:39am local time May 31, beginning the five-day journey across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii. This news comes three weeks after the original departure date , which was pushed back repeatedly as dangerous storms threatened the flightplan and the pilot’s safety. This is the seventh leg of the round-the-world journey for this experimental aircraft, which uses zero fossil fuels. The adventure began in Abu Dhabi on March 9, and is expected to culminate after twelve individual flights bring the Si2 back to its starting point, setting a number of world records along the way.
