You know, I wouldn't be surprised if humans invent a warp drive by then. Ninety-four light years is way too far in order to reach a new planetary system in less than five hundred years from now (assuming we didn't even begin our journey for at least awhile), but 522 years is a longtime to develop a deep understanding of the physics of the universe. Who's to say that we won't understand inflationary physics in the next 40 years and construct space ships that can power themselves using inflationary or gravitational 'forces' to zoom across vast distances? The future is just to unpredictable for me to even say that it is or isn't possible.
