Hawking, Zuckerberg unveil $10B plan to reach Alpha Centauri in 20 years

Hawking, Zuckerberg unveil $10B plan to reach Alpha Centauri in 20 years Back on Earth, we’d then aim a yet-to-exist super-laser at these sails and blast them out in the direction of Alpha Centauri, our closest stellar neighbor.2c the team estimate their sail probes could reach Alpha Centauri in just over 20 years.

Scientists use lasers to create the brightest artificial star in the sky

Scientists use lasers to create the brightest artificial star in the sky Late last month, astronomers with the ESO’s Very Large Telescope began operation of a new tool called the Four Laser Guide Star Facility (4LGSF).This incredible new laser rig will create the brightest artificial star ever seen, and use it to produce some of the most incredible imagery we’ve yet to collect about the heavens.

Triple-lens camera no larger than a grain of salt can be injected

Triple-lens camera no larger than a grain of salt can be injected However, we do now have a camera that is so small it is only slightly larger than a human hair or the same size as a grain of salt.A research team working out of the University of Stuttgart used 3D laser writing in order to create the minuscule triple lens camera.
