This term we are expecting to get to Alpha Centuari, or get really close to it. The Science Department will head the research that is required for the space shuttle.
Science Leader- Bacon King
Science Deputy- N/A
Science Chat Rep- CivGeneral
NOTICE: The Science Department has been loosing intelligence, due to less funds because of the war, and civil disorder. We have lost the ability to count.

Knock Knock. Bacon are you present? I would like to apply for a Chat rep possition.

As we're about to achieve Rocketry and will likely get Space Flight next turnchat, we need some new techs added to the queue.

Eh, I'm awake. CG is now chat rep, and I was just about to set up a poll for the science part of RF's plan, which follows:

As is happens, I put together a rough plan for progressing through the modern age with the intention of a space victory. This plan included researching only the required techs for the launch. Upon the discovery of a tech that allowed a critical build (UN, Apollo and SS parts), a city was detailed to begin construction. At no time were more than 6 cities required.
Once we complete Apollo, we can build 3 parts. Assuming we research Synthetic Fibers as soon as possible, we will be able to build 3 more parts fairly soon. We then progress through the remaining techs to build the next four. With some planning and prebuilding, we can do this quickly.
With that in mind, here is my proposal.
Ecology -> Synthetic Fibers -> Nuclear Power -> Superconductor -> Satellites -> The Laser
With the current discontentment in Fanatica, I will assume a research rate of 6 turns per tech.
Two turns from now, Penguinadua starts a prebuild for an SS part. Three turns from now, Regia Doughnutia and Thebes start prebuilds for SS parts. The turn after that, Iron Hills completes the Apollo Program, all three cities switch to SS parts.
Turn 6, Ecology is discovered. Turn 12, we discover Synthetic Fibers. Iron Hills, Gorina and Aureus start the new SS parts.
Turn 18, we discover Nuclear Power, the last tech that does not give us an SS part. From now on, at least city will be using Palace as a prebuild for an SS part. Regia Doughnutia starts Palace.
Turn 24, we discover Superconductor. RD switches to SS part, and completes. Iron Hills starts SS part, Aureus starts Palace.
Turn 30, we discover Satellites. Aurues switches to SS part, Gorina starts Palace.
Turn 36, we discover The Laser, Gorina switches to SS part, and completes the Spaceship.
Turn 37, we launch.
If we are able to improve the research rate, the time will be reduced. Our building capacity far outstrips our reasearch capacity. Assuming a 4 turn rate, we ought to be able to launch in 25 turns, but that's an aggressive rate.
