The Voyager spacecraft-100 Year Star-ship

The Voyager spacecraft, exposed in this artist's description barreling away from the sun, would take tens of thousands of years to attain the nearest star to Earth. Scientists and researchers with 100 Year Star-ship are probing faster space travel and other elements needed to send a human crew past the Solar System.

Although NASA has ended its space take program and the latest mission beyond our planet occupied a robotic Mars rover, rather than astronauts, a group of scientists and dreamers is working out how to send humans to the remote stars.

The plan, called 100 Year Star-ship, has original funding from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). It's snooping what would be required to take a ship and crew away from our solar system within the next century.
