Laser driven space vehicles: An application of photons from sunlight
Author(s): S. Thamilarasu, P. Durai Raj, K. Krishna das
Abstract: This paper is based on the conceptual idea of space cars, which are believed to be developed in the nearing future. The basic principle of driving these space cars is fuelling it with sunlight to drive it. Sunlight as we all know travels at the velocity of light and are also force carriers exhibiting wave-particle duality. This principle is used to calculate how much energy is required to drive the space vehicle at the needed velocity. Though this concept we will be able to make space vehicles to travel by just propagating white on and not wasting any scarce fuel resources available on the earth.
