Pretty close too, 40 light years, only ten times further than Alpha Centauri A, B, and C.

I still think AC is the place to go to first when we get propulsion that allows 0.9 C or so. 0.9999 would be great. At least, good for the crew๐

Go to that 40 light year star, it would take about 1/2 year for the crew, and back 1 year, spend 5 years there, 6 years total for crew, 86 odd years passes by on Earth.
