Man will need to leave the Earth one day. Let's hope this science fiction can be made science fact.
Never say never.....the future is what we make it.

Mankind's First Starship
Our first starship needs to be a face-on pancake .
A top speed of 10% lightspeed mandates a passive-defense system . First step is ship morphology . A thin , flat design would minimize impactor traverse distance , also debris-cone size . A vacuum-pressure interior would eliminate massive blast waves ,and ease requirements for in-flight hull-skin repair . Heavy-duty cryo-tubes would magnify the frozen crew's radiation protection , while cryogenic interior temperatures would preserve them in case of .tube failure . Crewmembers should be placed headfirst , directly behind the ship's forward thin-skin . Spin-stabilization is optimal , with rugged fission reactors and reactionless-drive propulsors arranged about the rim of the ship . Landing capability should be built-in so that the ship can deliver the colonists to the surface , provide the supplies they will need , and be available for power , and parts cannabilisation .
Alright , there ain't nothin' like bein' there !.........P.M.
