  INTERSTELLAR TRAVEL1 The Possibility of Interstellar Travel Laura G. Diaz NOVA Academy Early College High School  INTERSTELLAR TRAVEL2 AbstractIterstellar tra!el is our ath#ay to more resources ad e# disco!eries. Ho#e!er$ the %uestio o& its ossibility i the '(st cetury is yet to be as#ered. )here are !arious roblems iter&erig #ith ay ad!acemets$ #hich iclude moey$ eergy sources$ ad the la#s o& hysics. )here is little &udig goig ito the research because may theories rely hea!ily o other theories. Coce ts such as #ormholes$ blac*holes$ ad the #ar ig o& s ace ad time are couted amog these theories. )he i&ormatio is to be cosidered$ but ot ta*e as &acts.  INTERSTELLAR TRAVEL3 The Possibility of Interstellar Travel )he ability to tra!el &rom oe solar system to aother is re&erred to as iterstellar tra!el. As o& today$ it is still a highly doubted idea$ but oe that has ro!e im ractically ossible. Ho#e!er$ there are theories ro!ig that #ith a &e# more years o& research$ it may +ust be   ossibleAs ihabitats o& a dyig laet$ those iterested i the otetial &uture o& geeratios to come may ic* u the sub+ect o& iterstellar tra!el. It is highly ossible that i the &ollo#ig ceturies$ the Earth,s atural resources ad s ace ca acity may ru out. )heir last resort #ill ha!e to be &idig aother habitable laet. -ith &urther research$ iterstellar tra!el may come sooer tha e ected. Using the Idea of Hypervelocity Stars It is ossible &or a ob+ect to tra!el at hy ers eeds through the use o& a hy er!elocity star.)hrough this coce t$ a theory is created &or hy ers eed domestic tra!el.)he ceter o& the galay is !ery li*ely to be a blac* hole. )his hole is a regio o& s acetime #ith such strog gra!itatioal ull that o article or electromagetic radiatio ca esca e it. /or years$ the ceter o& our home galay has bee theorized$ but may obser!atios ha!e oited to the resece o& a blac* hole. 0re!ious research asserts$ 1E!e our home galay$ the 2il*y -ay$ has a &our millio solar mass blac* hole located at its ceter.3 4Ga5ay6 Aroud(7 millio years ago$ it #as much more o#er&ul$ but has bee assumed to be a blac* hole.A solar system #ith three stars$ #he tra!elig too close to the blac* hole$ #ill result i oe star &lyig a#ay at icredible s eeds. )#o o& the stars #ill surroud the hole as they are  beig ulled i$ #hile the other is sligshotted i the o osite directio.
