Flight by Light Mission

Authors: George Rajna

Mission accomplished: the Planetary Society announced Wednesday that its LightSail 2 spacecraft, which was launched last month, had successfully raised its orbit using only the power of photons from the Sun. [30] The current detection suggests that many other such events will be detected in the future and will continue to shed light on this cosmic mystery. [29] In this week's Chaos, Tamás Kovács delivers an alternative method for stability analysis of exoplanetary bodies using only the observed time series data to deduce dynamical measurements and quantify the unpredictability of exoplanet systems.
