Journey to our nearest star would take 'centuries'
US agency aims to start journey within a century
Current 'chemical' rockets could not power the journey
After 30 years, the Voyager I probe, the furthest-travelled object man has ever sent into the universe, has travelled one per cent of the distance to Proxima Centauri, our nearest star. If the human race ever travel to other star systems, the journey could take generations.

Scientists, however, are still optimistic: particularly DARPA, the US military's 'mad scientist' division - who aim to foster interstellar travel within 100 years.
With ideas such as light-speed travel or 'suspended animation' still a glint in a science fiction writer's eye, reproduction in space might be essential, DARPA's 100 Year Starship conference heard this week. But scientists are not sure it is even possible.

For someone so much opposed to the celebration of Columbus's explorations, you seem inordinately interested in sending our emissaries to inflict our ways upon the natives of other galaxies (though if I was a native and a young Jane Fonda showed up I'd say "inflict away, baby!".



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

errr I am just a proponent of good sex.... devil smiley in space ...small spaces and large spaces me thinks *(:>*

But clearly the young Jane Fonda made me very crazy for sure *(:>*

As for Columbus it is all about mislabeling his accomplishments... but you know that *(:>*

One might be prone to concede that sex that is out of this world might just be really good so to speak devil smiley

DARPA must be smoking something. I'd wager that we can't even get a moon base within 30 years---let alone 100 years to other solar systems.

DARPA is assuming the Chinese will make the first trip.

Yes. Absolutely.

Many people forget that instead of traveling to the New World Columbus actually sat on his couch eating pizza and watching the American League games on tv.

Orrrrrrr he got lost and had a vacation in the Bahamas after giving the inhabitants a proper plundering devil smiley

plunder
verb
steal goods from (a place or person), typically using force and in a time of war or civil disorder : looters moved into the disaster area to plunder stores. The invaders were back and ready to plunder. See note at ravage .
• steal (goods) in such a way.
• take material from (artistic or academic work) for one's own purposes : we shall plunder related sciences to assist our research.

Pretty lame article. We've been talking about simulating gravity by spinning the spaceship (or space station) for many decades. Long-term radiation in deep space might be a problem, but not an insurmountable one.

Of course there are lots of good SF stories about life aboard multi-generation starships. One was a novel where all knowledge of the mission disappeared, and a tribal society emerged—can't recall which that was at the moment—maybe more than one.

Methinks the ray gun Ms. Fonda is holding is not the latest model. And what's up with all of those semi-erect tubes behind her?smile smiley

And I was hoppin' mad when the current international space station turned out to be the floating junk heap/Skylab -with-a-few-additions that it is and not a spinning wheel-style space station with built-in artificial gravity.

So, when members of his crew were beset by cannibals and eaten, their limbs were plundered?

Sir Sean had a "dry period" back then for parts and took what he could get. Fortunately that ended eventually, did not really need to see him like that.
