The Search for Earth Proxima

Since astronomers first discovered exoplanets in 1995, we've come to learn that there are a staggering amount of planets out there in the universe. But, we have yet to find one that's habitable, aside from our own. The Search for Earth Proxima is a short documentary about a group of scientists and their mission to build a telescope to hunt for an Earth-like planet around our closest neighbor: Alpha Centauri.

As seen on Scientific American, The AtlanticWiredViceThe VergeAstronomy Magazine, and Vimeo Staff Picks.
