Caption: Laser sail spaceship, computer artwork. This is a theoretical vessel that has a large, sail-like, thin membrane for using laser light. A large laser that is orbiting Earth could be used to form the laser beam seen here (blue). Pressure from the laser beam sends the sail and attached spacecraft accelerating past other planets. The acceleration would be very low but continuous, eventually allowing very high speeds to be attained.
