ESOcast 91 Light: VLT to search for planets around Alpha Centauri (4K UHD)

ESO has signed an agreement with the Breakthrough Initiatives to adapt the Very Large Telescope instrumentation in Chile to conduct a search for planets in the nearby star system Alpha Centauri. Such planets could be the targets for an eventual launch of miniature space probes by the Breakthrough Starshot Initiative.

The video is available in 4K UHD.

This ESOcast Light takes a quick look at the main facts and why this is an important step for the future.
