I wasn't really intending to call into question the currently
stated goal of the design project to build a manned interstellar
mission by 2050. All I really meant to say was that at this time
it seems sort of unlikely that our future will turn out like
that, but mainly for social rather than technical reasons.
I do think that if it really became a worldwide social priority
in the near future to take that first step to the stars in 2050,
it could happen.
