40 Thousand Years Between Habitable Worlds
A Space Ark with hydroponic gardens and frozen animal embryos for a 40 thousand year voyage between star systems would be the 21st century equivalent to Noah's wooden ark. We would take no reptilian embryos with us. We've had enough of dragons and serpents on Earth.
A Super Earth world that could be a port-of-call might be Glise 581 g [*] with its relative proximity since it is 20.3 years from Earth.
May God grant us his unmerited favor to speed us heavenward wherever it may be among the distant stars.
