China is looking for 'other Earths' to colonize


Recommended Posts

China has announced its first plans to search the stars for nearby habitable planets that could one day expand humanity's "living space" across the Milky Way.

In the project, called Closeby Habitable Exoplanet Survey (CHES), officials propose launching a 3.9-foot-aperture (1.2 meters) space telescope roughly 930,000 miles (1.5 million kilometers) to a gravitationally stable Lagrange point between Earth and the sun, according to the Chinese state-run news service CGTN.

Lagrange points trek around the sun at exactly the same rate as Earth does, meaning a craft at one of those points will remain the same distance from our planet indefinitely.
