Book Description

The Star Voyager roadmap is born in the wake of a new enthusiasm created by the 100 Year Star Ship interstellar joint initiative of DARPA and NASA AMES (100 year starship, The Star Ship program, for the first time in history, has fully opened up the interstellar travel theme as a domain for serious scientific collaboration and public participation.

This roadmap describes potential scenarios for our immediate space faring future and demonstrates how these will support and contribute to the overall goal of achieving interstellar travel. This work in progress looks at both the infrastructure and the expedient strategies critical for interstellar travel. It focuses on the first 100 years as a reasonable time frame to identify the plausible milestones necessary to attain a continuous and extensive space-faring capability.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you like wish lists May 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is a long sequence of wish lists, a break-down of items page after page. I would have liked to be told a story. Maybe I should have been more careful with the title.. it says the book is a roadmap. Nevertheless, I would have liked a good story taking me to the stars. By the way, the resolution of the pictures are horrible. I just could not figure out the writings on it.

I also was involved with this project in finding authors on chapters and editing. It's got a lot of top notch space scientists who have been working together for awhile. Good luck! -Michelle Cadieux

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars to Help Generate Interest... October 22, 2012

...and I look forward to reading this book and updating with a real assessment.

Both the presentations at the 100YSS Symposium in Houston, Orlando, and the title of this book do give caution, however. Some kinds of Solar System development appear plausible with evolutionary advances in technology, but interstellar activities will require fundamental change in our understanding of physics to circumvent the light-speed limit. I suspect this book will be a collection of papers submitted to 100YSS in concert with the Houston Symposium. Can anyone confirm?

Based on statements made early in initiating the 100YSS Study and subsequent planning documents, it seemed clear to this consultant by February 2011 it was a troubled project. That's when I approached DARPA and NASA, urging adherence to appropriate practices which might give the project a chance of survival. David Neyland was lobbied in Orlando later that same year, and pleas continued with Icarus Interstellar and Dorothy Jemison Foundation leadership before and in Houston to take corrective action in light of many failure indicators. Waiver of all cost, including a normal 3-digits-per-hour fee was offered.

It now seems reasonably certain that neither resources nor commitment to prevent inevitable problems exist, with results which will profoundly sadden many whose dreams are with 100YSS success. Even I secretly hope to have made some hideous misjudgment of the group's chances.

Good management of organizations to succeed simply is not of interest at 100YSS, if the response to "Developing Faster than Light Technology - a Project Management Institute Based Approach" is any guide.
