#2079: Alpha Centauri

Alpha Centauri

[Ponytail stands on a podium giving a presentation in front of a slide with an image of a Voyager-like [https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyager_1] spacecraft.]

Ponytail: Our probe can reach Alpha Centauri in under 35 years.

Offscreen voice: We should go somewhere else. Alpha Centauri sucks.

Ponytail: Huh? It’s the closest, most convenient system!

Offscreen: Yeah, but I checked online and it only has three stars.
