The vacuum of space. Was wandering about science things also. Some of you have heard of radiometers. They look like over size lightbulbs with balck
and white coated adjacent sides within a vacum. This is mounted on a freely revolving structure within the device. When exposed to sunlight the
surfaces repel the light and cause the structure to spin. The space shuttle being one of the few crafts designed with black and white coatings I was
wandering what the effect on a large scale would be? I believe while in orbit the orbiter resides in cargobay erathword position. Could this be used
in some maner for orbital alteration?
