Scientists Say Interstellar Mission Possible Within A Generation
Sarah Twidal, Noble Planetarium Manager, explains, “We are very excited about this discovery and look forward to more information as it becomes available.” Twidal has recently spoken on the Kepler Space Telescope and how it is helping scientists find exoplanets – planets which rotate around a sun outside our own solar system. She is available to speak with reporters about the significance of this discovery and the importance it will have shaping future research.
Scientists already say they plan to compile more information on the mysterious planet over the next ten years, including hopes for an interstellar mission to visit the planet in coming years.
