Revolutionary Project: They Made Aircraft That Will Connect The Nearest Star And Earth

Russian billionaire Yuri Milner and British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking on Tuesday revealed plans to connect the nearest star and Earth with small spacecraft with a core of one plant that will give a powerful laser.

Their idea is spacecraft “Starchip”, that weights only a few grams, which will move with a fifth of the speed of light, or 20 percent, to move protons produced by the laser from Earth, so it will bombard its cores of several square meters .

With a speed of 60,000 kilometers per second, the spacecraft could lead to “Alpha Cenaturi”, group nearest stars, for 20 years.

Yuri Milner, known for investments in multiple start-apps, especially Facebook, set aside $ 100 million for the project called “Breakthrough Starshot”, published at press conference in New York.

Milner said he will invest the first $ 100 million in the project, but later he will ask other sponsors.

The owner of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, is on the board of a research project that should include the scientific community, and the results will be made public, reports Hina.
