Is THIS the key to finding alien life? Antimatter sail propulsion spacecraft could reach 'Earth's twin' in 84 years

Four light years away from Earth is a rocky planet that may harbour life, called Proxima B.
While astronomers are eager to reach the planet, one of the biggest challenges to overcome in their quest is the propulsion system needed to enable both accelerating and decelerating to this distance. 
A firm now believes it has the solution in the form of an antimatter-based propulsion system, which it is now looking for funding to create.
