June 18, 2011

Paul Gilster of Centauri Dreams reports on the 100 Year Starship Study, an initiaitve launched by The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and NASA Ames Research Center (serving as execution agent), to discuss “the practical and fantastic issues man needs to address to achieve interstellar flight one hundred years from now“. The coordinating agencies will assemble a panel to discuss the implications of this endeavor at a symposium which will lay the groundwork for an organization that will one day create a  “self-sustaining organization that will tackle all the issues and challenges inherent in long duration interstellar space flight.”
