Traveling to the stars will be difficult, and require engineering on a scale unimaginable today — but the laws of nature say it can be done. In this talk, Les Johnson will describe the distances involved, the propulsion systems that will and won't work for getting us (or our robotic probes) to another star, and the status of research toward making interstellar travel possible. Note: Only technologies based on real physics will be described!
