There’s a whole organization thinking about building a starship in the year 2112, with a proper budget and government support and participation by private enterprise. And this week they’re holding a public conference in Houston, Texas: the first annual symposium of the 100 Year Starship Initiative.
Never mind the constraints of the miserable present: the shrinking budgets, the lost opportunities, the collapsing morale. Thinking is free, so let’s think really big. Let’s think about...building a starship in the year 2112.
