Learn about the science of space? Time to learn human lifespans are too short and space so large we will never get any farther than the planets in this solar system. The Voyagers reached the end of our solar system in 20 years. Light minutes in twenty years. How long to go a light hour, day or week? A light hour is 700,000,000 miles. Plus or minus a few hundred human lifetimes.

Gary, if you want to learn about space you don't need to travel light years, just a few hundred miles - up. There are literally thousands of planets, moons, and smaller, but just as interesting, objects within a year's travel from the earth - even with current propulsion. There was a time when a year long voyage was common. I hope to see it become common again.
