94 light years, 188 round-trip. Our current spacecraft would take aeons for such a trip. A rocket capable of traveling at relativistic speeds would still take longer than two centuries to do it, require more than one year of continuous acceleration to reach cruise speed, and somehow magically use the energy equivalent of hundreds of nuclear weapons without crushing the poor cosmonauts.

But Harv thinks it can be done. I think that means something: too much Popular Science is bad for your brain.
