Science Inspiration

Steve Crandall pointed me to an interesting kickstarter that essentially provides you with a controllable spacecraft destined for the moon.  What enthralled me about this craft was its plan to use a solar sail as propulsion.  Solar sails were the siren that lured me to science, in particular one marvelous science fiction story on solar sails by Arthur C. Clarke in Boy's Life, the US scouting magazine.  Thanks to google you can read the story that inspired me so many years ago, highly recommended.

Steve Crandall has an excellent blog called Tinglinde, also highly recommended.  Later!
