DARPA is funding research into an interstellar starship. But it’s not for a BSG prequel, as I discover in this new piece for Talking Points Memo:DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, is planning on disbursing a $500,000 grant in November for interstellar starship research. Though the agency’s plan sounds more like subject matter for a prequel episode of Battlestar Galactica, the agency is hoping starship research will lead to very real advances in science and industry.(via DARPA Is Funding Interstellar Space Travel | TPM Idea Lab)
When are we going to cut the B/S and rename DARPA, NASA?
