Random wikipedia article I found while looking for Marathon references ti Alpha Centauri


"A preliminary mission outline suggests the use of solar sails[4] propelled by high energy lasers to increase propulsion.[4] The proposed launch would be on the 100th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.[6] The spacecraft would reach Alpha Centauri by the year 2113, 44 years after its launch travelling at 10% of the speed of light.[3]

Only a concept... for now...
