If short term space missions are not worth bothering, the question becomes, when have we reached the long term? If we don't try anything new now, then there might not be any significantly different technology in a hundred years. I agree that this particular project sounds a bit too grand for our current level of technology, but I hope that doesn't stop us from continuing to travel further and further from home (Mars, Titan, etc.).

How come everyone's going so slow if it's called rush hour?
