100 Year Starship

Geeks dreaming about space exploration, but not just pottering around in our own solar system. The big picture involves leaving our home star. Given the scale of the universe, that kind of travel requires exceptionally long-term thinking and planning. The Long Now fosters a similar kind of mindset, encouraging speculative thought and projects, including attempts to revive various species (Passenger Pigeons, for example) that have fallen beneath the wheels of human expansion.
