How long, with current feasible speculation, would it take to get to a 
planet like earth?  Would it be feasible, with an unlimited supply of fuel 
and other resources to send over 100 people?  I would like to write sci-
fi, but without the info that would answer these questions, it's kind of 
hard to get my stories off the ground without making things up.  I think 
i'm too science minded to head into this blindly.
