The VASIMR Engine: How to Get to Mars in 40 Days

In theory, the VASIMR can also be used for interstellar travel, it can provide 1g constant acceleration (meaning it can provide artificial gravity). It's being developed since 1977. Thank you Franklin Chang Díaz for creating the VASIMR (Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket) concept! Overall, it's near the speed of light propulsion.
