Default The 100 Year Starship Study

100 years? I'm sure we can figure *something* out by then...

100 Year Starship Study

DARPA Lays Out Tech for 100-Year Starship Program | Human Interstellar Travel | Space Technologies for a Journey to the Stars | Space.com

"A Pentagon effort to enable a human journey to the stars within 100 years aims to enlist the brainpower of science fiction writers, ethicists and researchers. This new call for ideas covers innovations such as faster than light travel and life-sustaining technologies as well as questions about who gets chosen for the starship crew and what happens if alien life turns up at the end of the journey."

Yeah... bummer...

Well! At least you have a chance to come up with the drive technology. Imagine the posthumous fame that the "<your name goes here> Drive" would bring you as it sailed across the galaxy!

Wait, 100 years?

That would make it 2111 when they were finished.

I wonder if anything *ahem* interesting would happen 44 years later...

100 years is too long to wait, and to be honest, I don't expect anything (good) to come of this in the end, just look who's running the program. I'd either expect they'll steal the ideas to build some even more unneeded and overpowered weapons or just drop it completely in about, oh, 5 years.

Unseen Field Drive... sounds like something you'd be able buy on ebay for about $99.95.
