Miniature “Chipsats” Could be the First Step to Mankind Reaching Another Star
“To reach another star system, we need a method of propulsion other than current rocket technology. One of the most promising propulsion methods that could take us to the stars is photonic propulsion, or using a big laser to propel a small reflective spacecraft that has already been launched into orbit. This is how Stephen Hawking and Russian billionaire Yuri Milner hope to reach Alpha Centauri in our lifetimes as part of the Breakthrough Starshot initiative.”
