Came across this when pootling around the net:


This sounds too good to be true - or is this another minor science story blown up out of all proportions?

Seems more appropriate here in Astronomy.

It sounds a bit overblown: yes, we can travel to the stars, all we need to do is to find a six-solar-mass star that's traveling at 70% of lightspeed. (I'm making the situation up, but that's what it sounds like.)

Thought so. There's always a catch isn't there?

Ah well.
