Nice flying top!  ;) 

I knew about these lightcraft experiments but sending to orbit anything that is not very small may be unfeasible.  The full size model he shows would require a huge, humongous, laser.  By the way, the experiment they show looks a little weird: the laser is pulsing only about 1 time per second but you don't see the model bouncing up and down. 

The part about the "flying saucer" is sci-fi.

It looks good. ::)

It brings to mind a lot of questions but the first page of a quick Google Scholar search doesn't lead to much useful information.  Interpet that as you will (as you might any Wikipedia page).
