Making Daedalus Practical



This web page covers ongoing work on a modern version of Daedalus, by TZF and BIS. One recent post discussed the use of propellant tanks as communication relays that would be dropped off along the way. Each tank would split in half, with one half facing Earth and the other facing the spacecraft. Other recent posts discuss .1c hazards in deep space, and also stellar lensing - possibly the single most important technology available to humans in space.
