NASA and DARPA Collaborate For 100-Year Starship Study
(LANewsMonitor) Do you remember all those movies dealing with the genre of science fiction? Didn’t you find them a whole lot cool as well as interesting when you saw that a space shuttle has gone out of earth to be on a voyage to another planet and there are real human beings inside the craft that have taken over the controls and are guiding the ship through the obstacles that the ship is faced with in outer space?
Well, we know that you always wanted them to be taken right out of the big screens and put into real time space and you would be on that starship as a member of the crew. And now, how would you feel that a real human being could indeed be experiencing the same thrills and spills that got you goose bumps while watching the movie and would experience in it real time for real.
The agency for advanced research projects of the Defense of America or better known as the DARPA have shaken hands with the North American Space Agency or the NASA and they would soon be launching a space shuttle that would actually captained by humans and would take humans on board as the crew members.
Both the agencies came together for the announcement of what they are calling a “Hundred Year Starship”. The two research agencies have been working on this particular project for over a long year of time and finally their perseverance has paid off and it would be bearing fruits. The aim is not to focus on a particular technology to build the “Hundred Year starship” according to a spokesperson of one of DARPA and NASA.
