    IKAROS (Interplanetary Kite-craft Accelerated by Radiation Of the Sun) is a Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s experimental spacecraft.

    The IKAROS probe is the world’s first spacecraft to use solar sailing as the main propulsion.

    After spending six months traveling to Venus, and then it will begin a three-year
    journey to the far side of the Sun. The mission includes investigations of aspects of
    interplanetary space, such as the gamma-ray burst, solar wind and cosmic dust.

    IKAROS was successfully launched together with Akatsuki (the Venus Climate Orbiter)
    aboard an H-IIA rocket from the Tanegashima Space Center on 21 May 2010.

    IKAROS Solar Sail. Works on much the same principle as a radiometer.
    I believe that this type of system will be the fastest thing we create for a very long time. Ironic, given that it has no motive power of it’s own.

    The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency spacecraft Ikaros, which launched in May alongside the Venus-bound orbiter Akatsuki, is the first vehicle to have deployed a solar sail and successfully rode the sunlight in deep space.

    This is the solar sail.

    Solar sail,i think


  20. IKAROS (Interplanetary Kite-craft Accelerated by Radiation Of the Sun) is a Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s experimental spacecraft.

    Basically it’s an interplanetary light sail.
