Commander Sulu, you said it right.
This is your chance to help the future come a little quicker. The Planetary Society has set up a crowdfunding account to get the final costs of the solar sail so that it can be launched and the concept proven. What’s amazing about the solar sails is that once deployed the Sun Light hitting them accelerates them continuously. They start off very slow but never stop accelerating and will reach planets much quicker than what we’re using right now which are chemical rockets.
Watch the video, get stoked and make a small donation for the future of our planet.
