Expensive, difficult, slightly dangerous, not particularly effective... I'm on a roll.

If you use a cyclotron like you use in partical accelerators round that is, to accelerate any ion or partical you will reach .999999% of C . By the way Einstein's E=MC2 does increase the mass but it also increases the kinetic energy. You would have to use a nuclear reactor to achieve the energy to reach
.999999 of C .
||I was just reading about a new ion drive that can do about .65c [+]
||Ion drives are well known. As for the science, e=mc2 is for rest mass, and kinetic energy is not the important variable, it's the specific impulse.
