Interstellar Probe mission would go twice as fast and far ...
Kirby Runyon, a planetary geomorphologist at Johns Hopkins University, is
the planetary science working group lead for the Interstellar Probe. It's a
concept that has been in discussion and in development for decades, but
recently the idea has been getting more serious attention and a more fully
developed plan for execution.

Yes and what part of that don't you understand ?

Distance = Speed x Time

Our current max speed is slower than light
by a factor of over 30,000 .

That's over 120 millennia for a one way trip to our closect star
neighbor !
