Astronomers will be able to image Earth-like planets by 2025

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I would like to share with you guys a couple of interesting simulations.

This simulation belongs to an Earth-like planet located 4 light-years away, imaged with the European Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), expected in 2025:

This other simulation belongs to an Earth-like planet located 40 light-years away, imaged with the Large Ultraviolet Optical Infrared Surveyor (LUVOIR), expected in 2035:

What is the first exoplanet you would like to see an image of?

Very interesting.  Could anyone please explain a little about what it means to "simulate" Earth-like planets?
