SRP revolves around the idea that electromagnetic waves are mass-less, but exhibit mass-like properties. The photons in light emitted from the Sun move at the speed of light and have momentum. Because they have momentum, when they hit other objects, they transfer momentum to that object, giving it a boost in velocity.
