    Tractor Beam

    Star Trek style ‘tractor beam’ built by scientists; Will it be able to tow a spaceship? | The Space Reporter

    Now, a team of scientists from the University of St Andrews and the Institute of Scientific Instruments in the Czech Republic
    have developed a real-life tractor beam. Scientists note that although light manipulation techniques have been around since the 1970s, this study marks the first time that a light beam has been used to pull objects towards the light source, even if it is being accomplished at a microscopic level.
