Last April Scientists from the University of Sydney Worked with Breakthrough Initiatives in California, USA, which operates science and technology related to the search for extraterrestrial life, including the Saber Astronautics Institute in Australia and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Made a project called TOLIMAN (Telescope for Orbit Locus Interferometric Monitoring of our Astronomical Neighborhood).

TOLIMAN’s mission is to find out which planets exist in our neighboring star system. The star systems Alpha Centauri and Proxima Centauri are of particular interest. Especially which planets are conducive to life. Alpha Centauri is our closest neighbor star system. It consists of three stars that are loosely bound by gravity: Alpha Centauri A, Alpha Centauri B, and Alpha Centauri C, also known as Proxima Centaur. oval

The TOLIMAN mission will launch a custom-designed space telescope. This will measure the position of the stars in the sky very detailed. especially the search for planets orbiting other stars. It is a new way to explore and locate exoplanets in the vicinity of our solar system.
