in God's grand design we are but a spec of dust yet we are created for a purpose

There must be other way round of research which may lead to faster space travel. Its great to imagine human presence on another planet.

es increíble pensar que luz que captó esta fotografía fue emitida por la nebulosa en nuestra Edad Media.

While we're at it, why don't we figure out how we can bend space/time so we can move instantaneously without moving faster than the speed of light.

I want to see the development of much faster spacecraft within my lifetime.  Maybe nuclear engines are the answer because of their high output and low fuel volume compared to conventional fuel.  I see people developing solar sails and I think thats great from the perspective of trying to lower resource consumption but I really think we need to push out of solar system and actually send rockets and probes to further away places.  It would also mean we could explore our own solar system much more quickly.

@Patrick McKenna I think tat would be a huge waste of resources as man will never be able to withstand the physical pressures; it has to be a magnetic propulsion system; maybe in combination with Nuke power.
