Sailing the universe

This is just soooooooooooooo cool.  Not just the whole solar sail thing.. that's incredibly cool in itself, something that seemed like science fiction only not that long ago.  But if that wasn't cool enough, how"s this: the spacecraft is to be launched form a Russian nuclear submarine in the Barents Sea, using a converted intercontinental ballistic missile  !!   If you remember the cold war, this should really put a smile on your face to see those serious weapons of serious mass destruction be used for really cool adventures in sapce :)
