“Modern satellite technology will allow us to explore our celestial backyard.”

The University of Sydney and Bulgarian aerospace manufacturer EnduroSat have teamed up to search for alien life in our nearest star system, Alpha Centauri.

The plan for the TOLIMAN mission is to search for planets in the habitable zone around two Sun-like stars in the system, Alpha Centauri A and B, which are located four light-years from Earth.


The new mission was dubbed TOLIMAN after the star’s ancient Arabic name. It was backed by Breakthrough Initiatives, which is also responsible for a mission that aims to one day send a light sail probe to the star system.
