Journal inertialFrame's Journal: The Solar Sail Debate

I was too slow to get my two cents together on the great solar sail debate earlier this month. The discussion has been archived, and so I can't post a comment there. I did, however, write up an analysis (HTML) that cleanly shows what's wrong with Gold's basic model. I even treat the relativistic case, all with just a simple collision model stolen from classical mechanics.
