Solar Sails, Mars Rovers, Buy Now! Low, Low Prices! No One Cares About Them Anyway!

It's sad, sometimes, when they ignore these kinds of things in the mainstream media! Or that the Phoenix lander is hustling away on Mars, yet is relegated to page 14.

But anyway, my real comment: solar sails. What's the deal? Are we planning on building a Space Pirates of the Caribbean anytime soon? Will we have to scrape space barnacles off a few keels? Fire a space broadside or sing a space song about the H.M.S. Space Pinafore?

Anything works better when it's from space. Especially barnacles, 'cause space barnacles would be aliens and that would be all sorts of cool.
