Scientists sometimes dream too, and when they dream, they dream big, even if they dream very seriously. In a project that was part dream and part technical design exercise, a group of scientists drew up a plan to send humans to the outer fringes of our solar system in the later half of the 21st century. The result was a spaceship that may look similar to Discovery 1 from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.
