Reward is a feature that we hope will inspire experts to answer important questions and make their answers available to everyone. It allows a sponsor to signal that they think a question is particularly important by offering a financial prize for established arguments that contribute to the establishment or refutation of the topic. A prize winner can keep the money, apply it to reward other questions, or donate it to charity.

Statements

Statement Type Title Description Proposed Probability Author History Last Updated
STATEMENT Why not? The nearest star is only 40 years away at a tenth of light speed.

Why not? The nearest star is only 40 years away at a tenth of light speed.

A tenth of light speed might be possible.

Alpha Centuri is only 4 light years away.

40 years is within a lifetime.
