This Program has the long-range goal (by ca. 2040) of detection, remote-sensing spectral analysis, and imaging of potentially habitable planets around stars out to 40 LY, corresponding to a sphere containing roughly 350 stars . ) to ultimately image Earth-like planets in the potentially habitable region or the “Goldilocks zone”—not too hot, not too cold—around a star. In the near term, however, there are a number of interesting interstellar precursor scientiﬁc opportunities that could serve as intermediate, near-term technology demonstration missions on the way to developing propulsion systems capable of achieving the ultimate mission to the stars.
