Ive read about Orion spaceships and other similar concepts, like Medusa, Mag-
Orion and Mini Mag-Orion. Its possible to use them for (manned) interstellar 
travels, at speeds about 1 - 10% c? Some write its possible, but some disagree.
And what about other advanced technologies, such as VASIMR, ICF, Vista ot ICAN 
spacecraft? What is maximal speed limit for them?
Thank you for your answer.
