Forget spaceships, future travellers could travel between stars on giant hollowed out asteroids, according to a radical new plan. Students and researchers at Delft University of Technology are designing a starship they say will be able to keep generations of crew alive as they cross the gulf between stars. The TU Delft Starship Team is already working with the European Space Agency on the life support systems needed.

'We need self-sustaining and evolvable space technology capable of enduring the many decades needed to journey from our Solar System to another,' said DSTART leader Angelo Vermeulen.
