Problem:
I have to do a required senior project for high school. My topic is the general physics behind deep space travel. (like humans traveling to other solar systems in reasonable time).
I need to do a project on it but do not know what exactly to do. Please Give Me Ideas!

Basically, I would like to build a warp drive for a spaceship. I obviously can't do this but thats the kind of thing i would like to do. Keep this in mind when thinking of other ideas.

Please Help!!!

Are you doing the project on deep space travel or interstellar travel? "Deep space" usually refers to the far reaches of the solar system, not to other stars.

If you're actually researching interstellar travel, try Wiki'ing these to get you started:

Interstellar travel
Project Orion
Solar sail
Generation ship
Bussard ramjet
