i don't want too be harsh,but why his opinion on the mater should deserve a article?His opinion is as good as anybodies.--87.65.215.54 12:11, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

I agree. For example, i could argue that such a drive may be able to accelerate "something" to that speed, but do you want some undefinable biomass to reach the target, or humans (g-forces)? Next, i could argue that technology is never a solution to human-problems. I.e. our unresponsible behaviour would not be solved by colonizing other planets - we would just get "a few extra lives" to spend in the videogame. But the problem would continue to exist. Distributing the risk may even increase it because of psychological effects. I bet there are countless other opinions and views on this topic by other scientiests and philosophers. You could try to get all kinds of opinions on this topic from other sources.... then, in the end you may get an NPOV "article".... but not necessarily a "news article". --82.141.52.60 01:47, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Definitely… not… news. Nice to know the guy is doing OK, so that's relevant and current :v) .74.134.236.69 05:08, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
