SUMMARY: A full-sized replica of a Cosmos 1 solar sail is now on display at the Rockefeller Center "Centennial of Flight" exhibit in New York City. The 14.3 metre blade is made of a silvery Mylar-like material and joins several other exhibits at the show. If all goes well, the real solar sail will be launched on board a refurbished Russian ICBM some time this fall. The sail will be on display until August 18, 2003.
