Beamed Energy Propulsion for Practical Interstellar Flight
G.A. Landis (1999), JBIS, 52, 420-423Refcode
At the recent workshop on Robotic Interstellar Exploration, a group was formed to analyze potential beamed power systems for interstellar exploration. Three “strawman” missions were proposed, culminating in a practical interstellar flyby. In addition, a “roadmap” of near-term missions to develop the technology was proposed.
