New Property Of Graphene Discovered

Shine a laser or just strong light on it, and it moves. Researchers don't yet know how that works, but think it's possible the laser builds up an electron charge on the graphene until the electrons are released in one direction. They also don't know why the electrons would be released that way, rather than randomly. But even without knowing why, one can see that this could be a pretty fabulous technology to build fuel-less spacecraft able to travel forever.
