Scotty, take us to Mach 294 please!

In this interesting press release from Bae Labratories, they discuss their new Photon Laser Propulsion system which they successfully demonstrated. According to the press release, the system would be able to generate speeds in excess of 100km/s (Mach 294, roughly). This magnitude of propulsion increase would make the 6 month trip to Mars in about a week.

I think this is fascinating.. Perhaps the stars will be within our reach in our lifetime afterall.
