Are there realistic options for going to the stars?‏


Some of you may have wondered when looking up the night sky if interstellar flight is at all possible or is it the dreams of couch potato StarTrek fans? We went to Moon, hopefully Mars not too long, what's next? Here's a recently written readable article that gives a good introduction on the subject:

In short yes there are currently options that could work given our current understanding of Physics, however they would be prohibitively expensive, impractical, too slow etc. The other option is to improve our knowledge of Physics to make interstellar flight less expensive, practical and come up with a fast transport method so the question is still open, good for us!
