Default Science question

“Mars may be your first spot, but there is a star system called Alpha Centauri that is 4.2 million light-years from Earth.

"You are never, ever going to be able to get there by setting fire to things – but a fusion engine can do it in 11 years."


Hang on

If something is 4.2 million light years away and he reckons he can do it in 11 years, doesn’t that mean he is planning on travelling at about 381,818 times the speed of light??

Edit - Express being daft

Should be 4.2 light years

So he’s travelling at about 0.38 the speed of light. About the same as Kanchelskis.

He is still talking out of his Arsenal surely?

It's in the express pal. Can't see them printing it if it wasn't verifiably true. Looking forward to it tbh.

One of the ugliest Fords ever, the fusion. Setting fire to one would’ve been an act of kindness.

Never knew their engines were that good though.
