Star Travel

The nearest star to us is Proxima Centauri. This would be our first choice since it is the closest. However, it takes light four years to get to Earth. That also means, the start could die today right now and we would only see the star supernova/dim out by 2019. To travel to this star by our way that is the most covenant  way to go is also our slowest way to go. We would not get to the triple star system until 81,000 years into the future. Another possible issue is the advance in tech. If we send a space craft out 20 years and then discover a much faster way, the ship we sent out would be surpassed thus making the mission of the first ship pointlesshttp://www.universetoday.com/15403/how-long-would-it-take-to-travel-to-the-nearest-star/
