Solar Sailing

The age of the solar sail is upon us. A lotta Sci-Fi authors, moviemakers and comicbook artists have been talking about solar sailing. And now it’s finally here.

Cosmos 1 – what it is.

How it works – skip the intro and watch the explanatory video.

I know the video is a bit reminiscent of Resident Evils Umbrella Corperation – but the idea is great and since its launch last week it has been working so far. See for yourself through the Clay Center Observatory.
