Laser Powered Flying Saucer Spacecraft

By: Steve Wylde

Laser Powered Flying Saucer SpacecraftIn a few isolated labs around the world, scientists are working on future spacecraft propulsion systems. One such project conducted by Leik Myrabo from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has already successfully demonstrated laser powered propulsion is possible.

This would eliminate the need for spaceships to haul tons of fuel. The laser technology was developed from the now defunct star wars program.

His Laser Powered Flying Saucer uses a powerful laser beam made of infrared light, as the laser beam pulses; it strips oxygen molecules of electrons creating an explosive plasma that propels the craft forward. This laser technology you see in this video below is so intense could accidentally disrupt a satellite in orbit.

The future of this technology could utilize energy converted from the sun by orbiting satellites, then the energy would be beamed to the spaceship. The crazy part of all this is that this technology was developed over 10 years ago. Imagine how far this technology is now in some of the secret labs around the world.
