photonic propulsion

At 30% of the speed of light, we could be to Mars in 3 days!

At the same speed, it would take over 800 years to reach Alpha Centauri, the closest star system to Earth.

With photonic propulsion, it's a huge leap forward, but we'd still have a long ways to go before we could really reach the stars.

Do I have to say it? Jesus, Allah, Vishnu or any of the other 3,000 gods ain't gonna get us anywhere.
