Project Blue: A Crowdsourced Telescope to Find Another Earth

SETI Institute and others crowdsource a telescope to find and photograph another Earth. 

Project Blue is a consortium of leading space and research organizations on mission to build and launch a small space telescope to observe planets around our nearest stellar neighbors: Alpha Centauri A and B. With a modest budget and a planned launch by 2020, the goal is simple: to capture an image, visible to the human eye, of orbiting planets. Seeing a ‘pale blue dot’ could indicate the presence of oceans or an atmosphere — the potential to support life. It would be our first view of another world like our own.

The Kickstarter was launched on November 15, 2016. It seems in the realm of possible now that things like StartShot Initiative exist. There is a summary of the project in the New York Times. See ProjectBlue.org for more information.

    I have been suffering from (HERPES SIMPLEX) disease for the past four years and had constant pain that really drove me crazy,especially in my knees. During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my Doctor, few weeks ago i came on search on the internet if i could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (Hepatitis B and STAGE3 cancer) by this Man Rick Simpson, and she also gave the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i wrote to Rick Simpson, telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! hmm i never believed it..well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as the Dr assured me that i have been cured,after some time i went to my doctor to confirm if i have been finally healed, behold it was TRUE, So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can Email:{rickoil@rediffmail.com}
