Answer:
Thank you for all your help in this effort. It is obvious that you care about and think a great deal about these challenges. Our mandate is for the trip time to be on the order of 20 years. So that it can be reasonable to believe that the folks that work on the project will be alive when the information from the planet is returned. This drives us to a higher velocity and to the lower mass.

Thanks for the site to put ideas on, there are a lot of people out there who care, I am just one of many and it is a pleasure to help in any way we can.
