Sending probes to Alpha Centauri, explained with Explain Everything

Sending probes to Alpha Centauri explain everything

Did you know that The Alpha Centauri system is the closest star system to the Sun?

Current NASA probes would require thousands of years to get to the Alpha Centauri star system. Scientists are now working on tiny probes equipped with light sails driven by giant laser beams from earth. This intervention will shorten the journey to just 20 years!

Have a look at this project created with Explain Everything.
