Liked the image. The article was horrible. How obtuse.

Ah, other people found it first!

I'm really chuffed that they chose it - it's a rather old LW model of the BIS design for a practical starship to reach Barnard's Star in 50 years.

And no, I did not get paid, (I dithered a bit and would not have let a lesser publication have free use, but I'll be very interested to see how much traffic it generates.) I did insist on a reference to my web site, though I'm a little disappointed it was not done as a proper link.

I did an animation of it I have somewhere, rather tricky on how to depict nuclear explosions going of faster than the frame rate!
