In order to travel from our solar system to other stars (and survive the trip) humans will have to travel at close to the speed of light.

In this video, a collaboration between animation studio Thought Café and Popular Science, we explore what happens when you travel at the speed of light, and how moving at this speed could make interstellar travel possible.
