Former NASA Scientist: Interstellar Travel possible only after at least 200 years

Everyone at some point in time would have had the dream of traveling in space one day. While a NASA scientist did not rule it out as being impossible, it looks like we will not be able to make this trip in this lifetime after all.


Everyone at some point in time would have had the dream of traveling in
space one day. While a NASA scientist did not rule it out as being
impossible, it looks like we will not be able to make this trip in this
lifetime after all.

According to Marc Millis, a former NASA propulsion scientist, based on an analysis of 27 years of
data on energy growth trends, mission energy requirements, individual energy
use and any other energy requirements, we would require at least 200 years just to obtain enough energy to make an interstellar one-way journey.

Mind you, at least another 200 years just to collect the energy needed for the journey. Throw politics, technology and other limiting factors into the mix and well, you get the idea.
