We should be using the LHC technologies to power, or throw, a weightless ship through space. If there isn't any resistance, why couldn't something as small as protons be used to move it? I've never been to school, but it would make sense in my mind that outside the gravitational pulls there wouldn't be much resistance and we could use the coldness of space to cool the equipment, saving on some energy expenditures that we have here on the planet.
