Big Grin Lightsail Kickstarter - Donate Today!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/the...ideo_share





I heard about this like 5-10 years ago. This really is amazing. I never thought they would actually do it in my life time, let alone this soon.


I kicked $80.00


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

I'm stumped as to how they can go any direction other than directly away from the sun...

Can anybody explain that???

Added.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Well they said it works like a sail boat. You can sail into the wind or cut into it like they said, so maybe it works the same way?

That works because the keel of the boat presses against the water preventing the boat from simply going with the wind.

What would a spacecraft push against?

exactly Chas...

I can see using gyros to maintain attitude - but for inducing direction perpendicular to force - I just don't see how.......

RE: Lightsail Kickstarter - Donate Today!
Cannot direct the force of light particles hitting by having an angled sail? Re-radiate light and change direction like below:

' \ travel in direction perpendicular to sail
'----photon before impact------>--->----\
' | \ angled light sail
' |
' | re-radiated photon

Is just talking out my ass but seems like it could work to me?

EDIT: FUCK! Why no spaces? Fuck! Fuck! DeepThought! Foiled again! Waaaa Sadcryface
