Quoting Prince: 'The internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you.'"

Why only use the solar sail? Use the sail to get up to speed, then disengage it and switch over to using a Bussard ramjet. Use of the ramjet should provide ample power for guidance corrections using a vectored thrust system.

Of course, the article may be leaving out a point like using gravity boosts for the sail on its way out, in which case a thousand kilometers would be a very drastic course deviance.

Regardless of whether a mission expands or contracts, administrative overhead continues to grow at a steady rate.
