SPACE INTERFEROMETRY MISSION: KEY SCIENCE PROJECT
Discovery of Planetary Systems with SIM



Tutorial

NASA's Space Interferometry Mission will measure the positions and motions of stars with an accuracy over 100 times greater than currently possible, allowing new realms of science to be explored. Our team was one of Ten Key Projects selected by NASA.

Together with the EPIcS team (P.I. Mike Shao) we will use SIM to search for terrestrial-class and larger planets around nearby stars.
