We know that there is an absolute theoretical max limit on speed of c , and actual speeds will surely be FAR less. Max speed today is slower that c by a factor of over 30,000 . But even at c , a one way trip to our closest neighbor stars will take far too many years !

But remember... *IF* you could actually attain a speed of c (which you can't), then the trip, according to the travelers, would take zero time! For the folks back home watching, the trip would take 4 years! So says the math....
