    Forget three days, now physicist behind radical laser propulsion system
    explains how we could get to Mars in 30 MINUTES

    -Idea put forward by UC Santa Barbara physics professor, Phillip Lubin
    -He wants to fire high-powered lasers onto sails on a wafer-thin craft
    -Craft could be propelled to the red planet at 174.3 million miles per hour
    -Has previously said that a large craft could get to Mars in three days

    A small probe could get to Mars in less time than it takes to watch 'Interstellar'.
    That's according to physicist, Phillip Lubin, who recently outlined how a probe could reach the red planet in just three days.
    Now, Lubin says that time could be reduced to just 30 minutes by using extremely powerful lasers to propel a wafer-thin unmanned spacecraft.
