'Frederick Pohl's skill as a writer is first class.  In his grasp of scientific and technological possibilities he ranks with Asimov and Clarke ... I found the book terrifyingly plausible and at times, a traumatic experience'
Edmund Cooper

Laser Power Stations
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.
