Dear List:

Sky & Telescope, pages 29-30, to qualify Lazio's statement:


"Could we produce a neutron beam so that 11 minutes in the
neutron beam's frame of reference would be 4 years in out frame
of reference, thereby allowing about half of the neutrons to
make it to the nearest star? Unfortunately, no. Scientists
would have to accelerate neutrons to energies near the surfaces
of neutron stars, which is at least 1,000 times beyond LHC's
capabilities."


I don't want to speak for Lazio, but I believe he was proposing
various methods. Some of which we are capable of doing now. And
some that would be possible in the future.

I suggest if you all really are interested in this subject, dash
to your local magazine dealer and buy a copy of the latest Sky &
Telescope. Lazio, to my mind, is blowing my mind. Who would have
thought S&T would be publishing an article discussing contact
with other civilizations. I think this issue is a historic issue
and should be kept for future reference when we actually make
contact.
