Whether you're a Trekkie or not, you have to admit that there's some sense of wonder to exploring the stars and trying to find life on distant planets. Of course, the U.S.S. Enterprise is a fictional ship, but have you ever put into thought as to what it would take to actually build it, and when we could get it done if we really put in the effort?
The man behind the well-researched site buildtheenterprise.org has, and he's determined that a fully functional Enterprise is only 20 years away if we put in the effort. In 20 years, the ship would be ready for a 'moon fly by' with full crew and supplies.
