Sunjammer spacecraft to 'sail' towards the sun

The UK Space Agency has announced that British scientists are now working with Nasa to develop the spacecraft, known as Sunjammer, which will use a 13,000 square foot solar sail to propel itself nearly two million miles towards the sun.

The sail will then help control the spacecraft in a steady position in orbit around the sun where it will act as a kind of forward observatory of the star at the centre of our solar system.
