I mostly just imagine stuff. For some years I've had imaginings of what might be possible if we could fire a laser like that of the N.I.F. into a magnetic field like that of the L.H.C. Recently, Hawking has announced his initiative to explore space at near lightspeed with "micro-ships" propelled by earthbound lasers. And this really has me wondering now, would a powerful ship mounted laser firing into a powerful magnetic field not generate "ample" thrust? Could this not be attempted on a smaller test scale? A drone/satellite size/type craft generating its own field and laser? If it were possible and a craft could reach near lightspeed, what I wouldn't give to see the clock after it traveled near lightspeed for some time. Anyhow, just looking for some educated thoughts if possible, or even probable. Thanks.
