Come Sail Away

So JAXA's Ikaros, short for Interplanetary Kite-craft Accelerated by Radiation Of the Sun, is now gliding its way through our solar system.

This may be slow, but it's cool. And ya know, the idea of using this as a big power collector is good, because maybe it could power VASIMR rockets. :)

Who knows, but I love science, engineering, collecting new data and space. :) Beautiful combo package!

I think the polarity of the science is technically sound, but, I stand to be corrected.
