The ambitious plan to send a spacecraft in search of life to the nearest habitable planet beyond our solar system -- The very first technology to let us explore other continents on Earth will also be the technology to let us explore our nearest star. Sails, which our ancestors used to capture the force of wind to power boats, will now harness the force of light to power spacecrafts.
