NASA about to launch new program after 4000 planets have been found to possibly have Life.

According to NBC News Alpha Centauri, two stars that at just over four light-years (about 25 trillion miles) away are the closest sunlike stars to our solar system, is the focus of a new effort to find planets that could reveal signs of life.

The project centers on building a small space telescope dubbed TOLIMAN after a medieval name for the star – that will go into Earth’s orbit in about two years and could start detecting planets by about 2025.
