On this page we list every technical paper known to us that has been published on interstellar studies or related themes. This includes papers on:

  • Spacecraft concepts, designs and mission architectures, robotic and manned, which may be relevant to interstellar flight;
  • Space technologies at all readiness levels (TRL1-9), especially in propulsion;
  • General relativity and quantum field theory as applied to proposed warp drives and wormholes in spacetime;
  • Any other breakthrough physics concepts applicable to propulsion;
  • Nearby mission targets, particularly exoplanets within 20 light-years;
  • Sociology, politics, economics, philosophy and other interstellar issues in the humanities;
  • The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) and related search and messaging issues.
