In the 1950\'s NASA studied the concept of thermonuclear powered spacecraft called Project Orion. It was estimated that a battleship-sized spacecraft could be routinely accelerated to 1000 kM/second. The FIRST part of this panel will be spent explaining how to determine locations of the planets on a given date and how to calculate travel times between them. The SECOND half of the panel we will be using this information to write progressive, improvised SF space ship stories for fun, and read them back to the group. You can attend one or both or just come for the readings at the end.
