Image Description:Futuristic Concept of a Laser Powered Spacecraft or Spaceship stock photo. This is a photo by NASA Public Domain showing futuristic Concept of a Laser Powered Spacecraft or Spaceship.
Laser power stations, perhaps drawing energy from the local environment, might one day propel spacecraft throughout the solar system, as seen in the futuristic artist's concept above. NASA has developed artwork like this over the years to help visualize various exploration concepts, from small robotic probes to multiple-spacecraft human exploration missions.
