Yes. There is a rather clever hybrid laser propulsions/smart particle propulsion system devised by Jordin Kare that might have powered some of these early probes; a big laser array accelerates millions or billions of tiny laser sails, which then converge on the payload and act like mass particles to transfer significantly more momentum to it.
The Sailbeam concept (yes, I know I've mentioned it before)

By 2130 (160 AT)the family business, Lee Interorbital had a fleet of LEO shuttles. By 2150 (180 AT)they had established their own orbital habitat, - a combination of theme park, business hotel, and tax and data haven, officially called Elysium but more affectionately (and sometimes not so affectionately) known as Marcus World. This was to be the first of a number of "company biospheres" that were later to dot the asteroid belt and the surface of the half-terraformed Mars.

During the first few years there was considerable friction between the two groups. For instance; the debate raged for three months when they decided to rename the Odyssey in [b]226 a.t.. The utopians proposed 'Utopia' and was vehemently vetoed by the academics, the academics proposed 'New Academion' which in turn was vetoed by the utopians. In the end they settled for 'Tir Sorcha'.

225 - Odyssey habitat is renamed Tir Sorcha.

Resolved in favour of the earlier date. Side note: there is no entry to explain what is meant by a 'data haven', something frequently mentioned in earlier vintage OA articles. I'll create a thread on this elsewhere.

Other minor edits to the article too. Conflict between timeline and article resolved in favour of the article.

185 - First human equivalent autonomous moravec robots (vecs); before this date independently mobile robots were limited to sub-human intelligence by law. Limits to processor capability result in these early vecs being of considerable size, comparable to terrestrial megafauna.

186 AT it is - thanks.
