A dramatic plan to put humans on another star within 100 years today received the backing of former President Bill Clinton.
The 100 year Starship project, which was set up with US military seed funding, plans to develop huge ‘starships’ to send humans to other stars.
Next week it will meet to discuss the project and begin the huge task.
It has already received large amounts of funding, and former President Bill Clinton has even stepped in to serve as the symposium’s Honorary Chair.
In a statement, Clinton said: ‘This important effort helps advance the knowledge and technologies required to explore space, all while generating the necessary tools that enhance our quality of life on earth.’
