Did you know NASA and DARPA are offering $500,000 to whoever can come up with the most promising idea for getting a manned space ship to another star within 100 years? Or something like that. It's called the 100 Year Starship program (100YSS for short : P) and while the propulsion methods thrown around are still more or less theoretical—light sails, fusion engines, and even warp drives (in *theory*, with an absurd amount of energy you can warp space/time around a ship... : P)—the idea is to help get serious discussion, at least, kick-started.

I found out about it through this BBC article.
