More like 20 - 30 thousand MPH.  Far too slow to cover solar systems
distences quickly.  But we do know of much better systems.

We could work on a Alpha Centuri flight.  Thats closer to our capacity.

Oh, as far as cabin space.  Its going to need to be big because of the need
for a large diameter centrafuge, and because the crew will need a lot of room
to keep from going stire crazy!
