Director Dr Richard Obousy presents to students at LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas. The first confirmed detection of a planet orbiting another star came in 1992. Since then, over 1,060 exoplanets have been discovered and astronomers estimate that there are billions of such worlds within our galaxy alone. While fascinating from a scientific perspective, is it possible that we could ever send probes, or even humans to these new worlds? In this talk he explores the fascinating topic of interstellar flight, and discusses several initiatives that might see us engage in initiatives that would enable us to cross the vast distances that separate the stars.
