100 subjective years? Maybe, just barely. 100 physical old-fashioned
objective years is beyond imagination.
I can imagine that an SI has to crawl to the galactic core at C in order to
travel back in time, thus taking a great deal *more* than 100 years, but 100
years of physical time to do anything that can be done in this solar system
- I can't buy it. That's ten billion years! What on heaven or Earth could
possibly take that long?
