100 Year Starship 100YSS gets DARPA Funding to make Interstellar Travel a Reality

100 Year Starship 100YSS gets DARPA Funding to make Interstellar Travel a Reality
 
 

DARPA funds a "Star Trek Enterprise" starship to enable humankind to travel beyond our solar system.

In the Star Trek Sci-fi series interstellar space travel is no problem since decades. Mankind is though not even able yet to fly people to Mars. SpaceX is working on that though. In the meantime DARPA kicks in motion a bigger project. The 100 Year Starship (100YSS) project mission is to make interstellar flights possible in the next 100 years.

The Dorothy Jemison Foundation for Excellence got $500,000 from DARPA to setup the inniative. Former NASA astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison will lead the global multi-­‐partner organization. Dr. Jemison, the world’s first woman of color to travel in space (1992’s Space Shuttle Endeavour), brings to her leadership role her vast experience as an engineer, physician, professor, former Peace Corps medical officer, and entrepreneur. Known for achieving the improbable, Dr. Jemison also brings a spirit of audacity, innovation and inclusion to 100YSS.

"Yes, it can be done. Our current technology arc is sufficient,” says Dr. Jemison. “100 Year Starship is about building the tools we need to travel to another star system in the next hundred years. We’re embarking on a journey across time and space. If my language is dramatic, it is because this project is monumental. This is a global aspiration. And each step of the way, its progress will benefit life on earth. Our team is both invigorated and sobered by the confidence DARPA has in us to start an independent, private initiative to help make interstellar travel a reality."

The 100YSS organization should definitely check out the build the Star Trek Enterprise project. They think they could build the starship in less than 20 years.

More details on the 100YSS site. Via GizMag.
