NASA works on laser propulsion spacecraft which could get to Mars in THREE days


In its latest video blog – NASA 360 – the space agency describes a spacecraft which is currently being developed and would rely on a technology known to experts as “photonic propulsion” which would allow spaceships to explore space at 30 per cent of the speed of light.

Photonic propulsion would theoretically work by using photons – which are particles of light – to propel spacecraft at extremely fast speeds.
