It also may be possible, given the large surface area of a solar sail, to use the sail to perform an aerocapture maneuver through the extremely thin upper atmosphere of Mars. IV. Technology Development and Demonstrations Within NASA, solar sail propulsion is moving forward to mission implementation on both the large (100 kg class spacecraft payloads) and small (cubesat) scales. From Sunjammer’s planned deep space flight validation to the Earth-orbital CubeSail, solar sail capability is advancing rapidly.
