    Roughly about 1 to 25 percent of light speed. But that would quite a bit of time, due to slow acceleration of ion, or plasma  type engines.

    We don't have any "nuclear powered engine" for space travel

    They are pushing for 250,000 MPH now, breaking 1 million MPH in a thousand years or so.

    A new hall plasma drive might give us half that, coming soon to a spacecraft near you.

  • We have definately breached the speed of sound, but I'm not sure about the speed of light; though, we could not survive that
