i am thinking along the thread of an earlier post that said we extropians
should look to the short term as well as the long term. so i am imagining
an interstellar craft that could be built in the next 100 yrs or so. this
no opening up wormholes, no impluse engines, etc. with our
paltry technology, there is huge delta between 4 and 10 light yrs. more
later! spike
