April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Last month in Houston, Texas, Former President Bill Clinton addressed the 100 Year Starship Symposium to express his support for interstellar travel. The Symposium is an international event advocating for human expansion into other star systems. Interstellar travel for humans will depend upon extremely precise measurements of every factor of the mission, and the knowledge of these factors may be improved by the solution to a puzzle...

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a novel way of producing light pulses that are "superluminal"–in some sense they travel faster than the speed of light. The technique, called four-wave mixing, reshapes parts of light pulses and advances them ahead of where they would have been had they been left to travel unaltered through a vacuum. The new method could be used to improve the timing of communications signals and to investigate the...

Proxima Centauri -- The red dwarf star Proxima Centauri (also Alpha Centauri C), part of the Alpha Centauri star system, is the nearest star to our Earth other than the Sun. Proxima Centauri is roughly 4.22 light years from Earth, 270,000 times as far as the sun. Its apparent magnitude is 11 (very weak, as red dwarfs in general are: far too weak to be observable with the naked eye). Proxima Centauri has often been suggested as a logical first destination for interstellar travel....
