dc.description.abstract Solar sails are a form of spacecraft that achieve movement through radiation pressure from the sun. My Honors Thesis focuses on a 'heliogyro type' of solar sail, which is essentially long thin blades that rotate around a central hub, very similar to that of a helicopter rotor. The following image is a conceptual view of a heliogyro type solar sail, which was created on ANSYS. en_US
