The research-and-development arm of the U.S. military is looking to spend half a million dollars in grant money to develop strategies and approaches toward interstellar space travel. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (D.A.R.P.A.) “will hold a symposium that brings together astrophysicists, engineers and even sci-fi writers so they can brainstorm what it would take to make this starship enterprise a success.” D.A.R.P.A. funds are no free lunch: If the ideas generated are deemed good enough, no money will be rewarded. Big Think.
