NASA 360 released a video about a week ago talking about new propulsion technology that could propel a robotic space probe to Mars in only a few days. To send a larger manned spacecraft to Mars, it would take about a month. That’s a lot better than the few months it already takes to send a space probe there.
How is it done? Lasers. This video introduces the concept, but you have to go elsewhere to watch the full talk.
Here’s the full talk in Seattle last year. There are several videos that cover different aspects of this topic.
What do you think of this topic? Would you like to see this technology happen? Let me know in the comments below.
