In Laser Thruster Advance, Light Alone Pushes a Sled Down a Track

Here is the latest demonstration of a propulsion technology called a photonic laser thruster. In it, NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts Fellow Young Bae moved a one-pound object on a track using light alone for the first time. 

The hope is that a laser fired from one spacecraft to another will provide enough push to make this form of propulsion viable for interplanetary travel.

Throwback Thursday: Robert Irwin will present the return of Excursus: Homage to the Square³, the artist’s landmark site-specific work. Originally named Prologue: x 18³, presented at Dia in the spring of 1998, Irwin changed the exhibition adding more colors to the fluorescent fixtures. Capitalizing on a subtle counterpointing of one hue with another throughout the chambers, Irwin posited a reference to the pioneering American abstractionist, Josef Albers.

Excursus: Homage to the Square³ opens June 1, 2015 at Dia: Beacon.
