Wikipedia

  1. Starship

    A starship, starcraft, or interstellar spacecraft is a theoretical spacecraft designed for traveling between planetary systems.The term is mostly found in science fiction. Reference to a "star-ship" appears as early as 1882 in Oahspe: A New Bible.While NASA's Voyager and Pioneer probes have traveled into local interstellar space, the purpose of these uncrewed craft was specifically interplanetary, and they are not predicted to reach another star system (although Voyager 1 will travel to within 1.7 light years of Gliese 445 in approximately 40,000 years). Several preliminary designs for starships have been undertaken through exploratory engineering, using feasibility studies with modern technology or technology thought likely to be available in the near future. In April 2016, scientists announced Breakthrough Starshot, a Breakthrough Initiatives program, to develop a proof-of-concept fleet of small centimeter-sized light sail spacecraft named StarChip, capable of making the journey to Alpha Centauri, the nearest star system, at speeds of 20% and 15% of the speed of light, taking between 20 and 30 years to reach the star system, respectively, and about 4 years to notify Earth of a successful arrival.

  1. starship

    A starship is a hypothetical spacecraft designed for interstellar travel, specifically between different star systems. This is distinct from present-day spacecraft or spaceships which are for local space exploration (within our solar system). Starships often appear in science fiction literature, films, and games, as actual technology for interstellar voyages does not currently exist.

  1. Starship

    A starship or interstellar spacecraft is a theoretical spacecraft designed for traveling between stars, as opposed to a vehicle designed for orbital spaceflight or interplanetary travel. The term is mostly found in science fiction, as humans have not yet constructed such vehicles. While the Voyager and Pioneer probes have traveled into local interstellar space, they are not generally considered starships because they have not traveled to other stars and also because they are not vessels. However, exploratory engineering has been undertaken on several preliminary designs and feasibility studies have been done for starships that could be built with modern technology or technology thought likely to be available in the near future.
