Going Space: the search for Exoplanets around Proxima Centauri begins

The palereddot project is the verification of the existence of exoplanets around Proxima Centauri. It will take a few years but hopefully they will find worlds to explore/colonize around the star closest to our own (apart from the one in the Dyson sphere that no one has noticed). Basically years of data suggest there is a planet there, but this project will analyse the data in order to verify the result.

Unless someone works out how to build that jump engine Proxima Centauri is pretty much 'the only solar system' to which we will be sending our multi-generational colony ship.
