Starship Departing From Lunar Orbit
Painting - Digital Illustration
An interstellar ship ignites its nuclear pulse rocket engine over the farside of the moon. The 10-kilometer-long vessel consists mostly of fuel and other consumables. After 10 years, it will have achieved 10 percent the speed of light, making possible a voyage to the nearest star, Alpha Centauri, in 50 years, when some of the original voyagers might still be alive.
