Nasa has unveiled proposals for next-gen exploration tech in Washington

Nasa has revealed 12 concepts for future space travel and cosmic science as part of its Nasa Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) programme. This includes a proposal to snag an asteroid with a net to prep it for further study (illustration shown)

One of the most interesting proposals is the Heliopause Electrostatic Rapid Transit System (Herts), illustrated here. This would use electrically biased wires to harness the energy of the sun and accelerate to speeds of more than 430 miles (700 kilometres) a second, enough to travel from the sun to neptune in just a year
