Share:BEIJING : A two-dimensional form of carbon known as graphene might one day help power #space exploration into the unknown universe, say Chinese #space engineers.
#Graphene, which is just one atom thick, could enable light-powered propulsion technology leading to fuel-free spacecraft.
If spacecraft could travel without fuel, humans could explore much farther into deep #space, Song said.
We need to conduct further research on the mechanisms and properties of the graphene and light-powered spacecraft.
If we make breakthroughs in this technology, it would facilitate exploration to the unknown universe,” Song said.
