Since the dawn of man we have peered into the night sky and wondered. And the more we’ve looked, the further we’ve seen. In the last 50 years, we have broken the shackles of gravity and ventured to the limits of the Solar System for the very first time. It’s been both a revelation and a revolution.
We now stand poised to cross the greatest threshold of all. Humanity’s finest minds have begun working on spaceships and telescopes that will take us outside our Solar System and deeper into the Universe. None of us know what we’ll find, but we do know what we are looking for: proof of the existence of life, in all its bizarre and alien possibilities, beyond Earth. This is a quintessential human quest. We are seeking company and reassurance in a lonely and expanding Universe.
