RE: starship-design: Re: Go Starwisps


We can't even determine telescopically whether MARS can support life and it is  
practically next door. I don't want to seem like I'm being facetious, but I think a 
resolution of 1 meter at 10 light years is reasonable. We might be able to spot 
gross life forms at that resolution.


Actually The largest scope I mentioned was Hundreds of thousands of miles
across.  Thou the calculations are a good Idea.  To a degree you could scale
up the scopes to any size nessisary.  How big would it need to be?
