Look around - and you will see the endless majesty of cosmos, a myriad of stars, whose light goes hundreds, thousands, millions and billions years. What keeps us from reaching them? Damned relativity! But there is a way to overcome it! In the beginning there were only thoughts, concepts. Alcubierre drive, Krasnikov tube. There only one challenge remains: generation of matter with negative density of energy - and forward, to the stars! There, where new life, new intelligence, new destination await! So far, these are only dreams... It is necessary to develop a theory. It is necessary to fund the experiments. Begin constructing devices unseen ever before. All this is for the flight to a distant planet. And lo, a massive complex is being built gradually. A spaceship with a strange structure is being designed. Finally everything's ready! Starship is ready for the first leap. Distance ahead, unexplored before, in some three light years (come to think of it that we may already say: "some three light years"!). Attention! Start! The leap is performed flawlessly. After a few weeks ship comes back with detailed snapshots of the nearest star - Proxima Centauri. This event is celebrated all over the globe. A hope is born, that there will be no need to slice and torture the planet tired of mankind. Finally there'll be enough place for everybody - after all the Universe has no boundaries.
