	I see...  But why would that *cause problems*.  If a character want's
to spend 40 years to explore a possibly uninhabited star, then I would let
them.  Especially if they can find ways to survive for that long.  A trip
like that would almost be like starting a new campaign.

	Maybe it's just my little vision of how the world works... (:
At least I have something new to think about.

ps.  Does anybody out there know how much air a person really uses?  I don't
mean "1 ton for 4 to 8 moths" either.  The atmosphere we breath is about
21% oxygen, which is what we inhale.  What we exhale is enough to live off of.
How long could a person stay concious in, say, 1000 feet^3?  Any doctors
out there?
