The Inst. for Energy Efficiency & Photonic Society at UCSB will be hosting a talk by Professor Philip Lubin, following recent press around his Photonic Propulsion proposals for fractions-of-light-speed space travel.
Prof. Lubin has recently made the news as Russian Entrepreneur Yuri Milner, with Stephen Hawking' s support, has chosen his Photonic Propulsion technique to send probes to our nearest start system, Alpha Centauri. (See Prof. Lubin's NASA 360 video, and more info on Milner's Breakthrough Starshot program.)
