Just found an interesting video on interstellar travel and what it would take.

Indeed a fascinating concept. Of course, we would have to wait a further 4.2 years to get the photos back ...

So there you are moving along at 7000 Km/h and a speck of interstellar dust hits your shiny new space craft. That's going to make your eyes smart. :(  Best divert more dilithium crystal energy into the forward shield Scotty :)

I do wonder if we are too limited in our thinking, after all the universe is infinitesimally small and the speed of light has no meaning so any travel could be instantaneous if we could understand how the quantum world projects what we see.
