French astronomy suggests construction of a hyperteleskop, which allows direct view of the surface earth-oriented exoplanets
Antoine labeyrie has a dream – for a long time. He dreams of a super telescope that is able to dissolve and photograph oceans, tropical walder and mountain chains from planets outside of our solar system – and at the same time proven traces of life. For some years, labeyrie has been trying to put his idea into action. So far his concept found only on the friction board. He still tinkes to the development of a small prototype – still the exo earth imager (EEI), so the name of the designed giant observatory, pure future music that will certainly sound at some point. But when?
Sage and write 181 exoplanets (as of: 7. Marz 2006), who have established themselves in 147 solar systems, were able to locate the mining planet detectives within eleven years with their earthbound and orbital magnifiers; 181 extrasolar planets, which have now been confirmed and cataloged and have made the jump in the official extra-solar planets catalog by jean schneider. There are still dozens of other localized candidates to finally be used as a true startrabants.
