Neat Space Project Planned

Earth Sky News reports on what seems like a pretty fun idea, alhough it will take a while to see results.

The plan is to launch some real fast spacecraft- traveling about 100 million miles per hour- and send them to Alpha Centauri. Even at that speed it will take them 20 years to reach the target but, once there, it will only take 4 years for data to return to Earth as it would be traveling at the speed of light.

Exciting stuff. Too bad at least some of us won't be around to see the results.

That was a super cool amazing report! Really expensive though!
