    100 years starship

    some review
    voices.yahoo.com/100-year-starship-symposium-disappointing-first-11767888.html

    Well, I actually forgot about it and came by a day late.
    I joined the mailing list, but...it's dead.
    I'm not saying it's not serious but it does seem suspiciously silent and not transparent and not open.
    Non of the papers got ever published beyond the meeting or any idea discussed.
    It's like an idea trap for some business people looking for ideas.

    scratch
    What's it supposed to be about?
    All I see is a bunch of nice looking astronomy pictures and a quote from
    historian Ariel Durant on it.

    See what I mean it's not transparent at all.
    And it's "sponsored" and run by professionals and celebrities....
    Well, its "mission" is to discuss the future of mankind or so but, actually, it's about the technologies, infrastructure, industries and we need to have to support a 100 year (travel) starship to the next star (Proxima Centauri).
    It is a hub to forward ideas and discuss the needs of development of technologies and everything else required ranging from social issues to whatever.
    But despite being part of the mailing list and waiting for months there's not a single activity on it. No paper turned in or discussed things, no result is ever published there for anyone to see or review.
    Nada.
    All the info & papers(see space combat thread) I provided are my own scurrying the net and scrapping whatever I could relating to this project.

    I would be a bit skeptical if there was nothing on it.How long has the site been around?

    At least since may, when they started asking for papers/
    Created perhaps several months earlier, certainly discussed for a year earlier.

    So at least the idea has been kicking around for a little bit.
