Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Experimental cosmologist Philip Lubin recently presented interstellar space travel scenarios at the Optical Society’s Laser Congress in Boston, informed by his direction of the NASA Starlight and Breakthrough Starshot programs. Lubin, a professor of physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, believes that by tapping into photonics-driven propulsion, researchers are well on their way to making laser-light-powered spacecraft that can deliver humans to Mars within one month. A major challenge in validating this photonics concept in relation to propulsion is the...Read full article
