Every once in a while I find it interesting to look back at all of the sci-fi starships that I have observed for the last 50+ years. Now that space technology in the United States is increasingly transferred to the private sector for development, recently the US made a small extraordinary funding grant to begin preliminary research in a Interstellar Srarship that is is expected to take 100 years to develop – the 100 Year Starship program. Here is a list of government agencies worldwide that are engaged in activities related to outer space and space exploration (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
