My Mic echo goes away about three minutes in. I figured out the cause and fixed it.

Can we really travel to other stars? Can Breakthrough Starshot meet its goals?

Breakthrough Starshot aims to demonstrate proof of concept for ultra-fast light-driven nano-crafts, and lay the foundations for a first launch to Alpha Centauri within the next generation. Along the way, the project could generate important supplementary benefits to astronomy, including solar system exploration and detection of Earth-crossing asteroids.

Join us this week with Dr. Avi Loeb the Chairman of the Breakthrough Starshot Advisory Committee as we discover the new projects and initiatives that are paving the way to travel to the nearest exoplanetary systems.
