The Pulse Launch System

Current Technology:

Planetary gravity assists are used to speed deep spacecraft well beyond all current propellant technologies.  The spacecraft are aimed at a strong gravity source, like a large planet, and the pull of that planet accelerates the spacecraft towards it.  The spacecraft then slingshots away towards the next target until the targets have all been used to reach the speeds achievable for speeding on to the mission objective.  The fastest speed for spacecraft achieved in this manner has been roughly 60,000 miles per hour.

Future Pulse Launch System Technology:

Building from lessons learned in the Divine Dragon Particle Accelerator facility described in the Faster Than Light section of this reference, particles of an almost infinitesimally small mass were first accelerated past the speed of light on magnetic pulses. This idea was taken to its greatest practical achievement by the United States National Aeronautical & Space Agency in its final years of existence.  NASA would go out with a bang sending the first remote spacecraft to other star systems.

The Seeker spacecraft would conclusively confirm the existence of intelligent life beyond the Sol solar system.  To get the Seeker spacecraft to another solar system in a timeframe where those who launched the craft could still be in charge when they arrived, a bold launch system was constructed in space extending from the orbit plane of Venus out to Pluto.  Just as Signal Accelerating Buoys were then being used to accelerate particles past the speed of light, a series of remote launch relay stations were strategically placed to generate magnetic pulses large enough to gently push the Seeker spacecraft successively faster until those spacecraft were traveling at over 350 million miles per hour (the speed of light is 670 million mph). 

While this is only half of the speed of light, it was fast enough to speed the Seeker One spacecraft to Alpha Centauri Major in ten years.  While en-route to Alpha Centauri, the Seeker spacecraft would make discoveries about anomalies in the background radiation in space that would lead to humanity’s first practical faster than light propulsion system for spacecraft large enough to have a crew on board.
