One small problem with Earth-based laser drives is there is no way to slow down. So yeah, you get to Mars in 20 days, but flash past in the blink of an eye. Can't linger and make observations.

How does a spaceship this size send back data?  Can it really generate a radio signal that could be picked up at earth?
