The search for the next earth


If you’re new to the subject, this documentary by Speculative Films is a great place to start. The film focuses on humanity’s search for habitable exoplanets around Alpha Centauri and actually features a few scientists on Mission Centaur’s scientific advisory board. It also briefly touches on our specific mission and the impact that finding an “Earth Proxima” might have.
