Some humans may be content staying in one place, but many of us are curious about what's beyond the next village, the next ocean, the next horizon.
Are there others like us out there? How will we reach them? Others are concerned with the survival of the species.
It may be that we have to get out of Dodge before the lights go out on Earth.
How can we accomplish this? Wonderful questions. Now get ready for some answers. Here is the science behind interstellar propulsion: reports from top tier scientists and engineers on starflight propulsion techniques that use only means and methods that we currently know are scientifically possible.
Here are in-depth essays on antimatter containment, solar sails, and fusion propulsion. And the human consequences? Here is speculation by a magnificent array of award-winning SF writers on what an interstellar voyage might look like, might feel like - might be like.
It's an all-star cast abounding with Hugo and Nebula award-winners, including Ben Bova, Mike Resnick, Jack McDevitt, Michael Bishop, and Sarah Hoyt.
