To quote in part:

		To Terry
              Kammash, going to the stars is not sci-fi stuff.
              In the new millennium, the nuclear engineer
              envisions missions to Alpha Centauri, closest
              star to our solar system. In just the next 20 to
              25 years, he predicts spacecraft will reach one
              milepost on the route, the Oort Cloud, a
              debris-filled comet belt 932 billion miles away.
              And hes betting the missions will use fusion,
              the basic energy source of stars themselves.
