Two Weeks to Alpha Centauri


Alpha Centauri is the closest star system to our sun. Officially third brightest star in the night sky after Sirius and Canopus, Alpha Centauri is actually a star cluster known as a binary system, consisting of Alpha Centauri A, Alpha Centauri B and Proxima Centauri. Proxima is closest at 4.22 light years, Alpha Centauri’s A & B roughly 4.35 light years or 39,900,000,000,000 km. from Earth.

This video speaks for itself – watch and ponder NASA’s warp drive vision of Alpha Centauri in two weeks.
