As some of the assembled might know, DARPA and NASA Ames have begun a collaboration to engage in a study of manned interstellar spacecraft, an alleged “100 year study.”
 
(Yes, some will want to cue the music to “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” with the voice over by Patrick Stewart….)
 
But (at least for the moment) it appears to be real…somewhat.  There was a press release that was issued last October 28, 2010 on this.  (Also available on the Web, via search engine.)
 
Exactly what will be done for the money let by DARPA….well, that’s more questionable.  (For the time being.)
