Are we ready to build a spaceship to explore nearby stars?

A SETI Institute video hangout with Gregory Benford (science fiction author) and Jill Tarter (Bernard Oliver Chair at the SETI Institute) on the Starship Century Symposium.

This symposium coordinated by the new Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination in collaboration with Gregory and James Benford, aims at presenting ideas from science and science fiction.

During this hangout, hosted by Franck Marchis (Senior Planetary Astronomer at Carl Sagan Center of the SETI Institute) and moderated Adam Mann (WIRED),  we will discuss if we could build a  spaceship to explore the nearby galaxy, and the contribution of the SETI Research Center to this project.
