Project Dragonfly – Sail to the Stars
The first international contest to let students shape the future of interstellar travel!
Following on from the April Lecture from Rob Swinney, here is the link to the campaign to raise £5000 to support the Project Dragonfly initiative – a competition to design a laser beam sail interstellar probe. They are off to a good start, raising over £1000 already and need support from the wider Astro community to reach their goals.
