Solar sails are very close to being non-fiction. In Europe, ESA and DLR have developed solar-sail technology small enough to be carried into space and light enough to enable efficient sailing. A 20 m x 20 m model consisting of aluminium-coated sail segments with carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic hooks has been manufactured and tested.
