LightSail will attempt to demonstrate controlled solar sailing—flight by light—for CubeSats (tiny, low-cost satellites). In 2016, The Planetary Society’s LightSail program will take the technology a step further.
Your generous donation to LightSail allows us to seed innovative space technologies, nurture creative young minds, and be a vital advocate for our future in space. Your support will ensure that together we can create a better future through exploring other worlds and understanding our own.
Let's change the world!
