As a sci-fi author, I spend a great deal of time pondering, especially about the hurdles of space travel. Untethered by intelligence and the need to “tell them what they want to hear to get an A and keep my GPA high”, I’m free to wander about the hallowed halls of theory, poking things that true scientists would dare not touch. Space travel is in our future, but how are we going to possibly reach another planet outside our solar system. Let’s light up a stogie, throw back some tequila, and chat about it. I’d love to hear your ideas.
