Life could be launched into space on laser-driven ships

Dr Claudius Gros, a theoretical physicist at Goethe University, Frankfurt suggests that we could launch miniature gene labs into space aboard laser-driven ships.

While our galaxy contains billions of habitable worlds, the ones we know about are sterile and void of life.But that could be set to change, if one scientist's controversial plans go ahead.Dr Claudius Gros, a theoretical physicist at Goethe University, Frankfurt suggests that we could launch miniature gene labs on robot probes into space aboard laser-driven ships.These mini labs could bring life to habitable planets, including the worlds in the TRAPPIST-1 system, according to Dr Gros.Scroll d...
