The impulse to strike out into the unknown, to see what is over the horizon is as old as humanity. Today, a whole new horizon beckons as astronomers are racing to find habitable worlds. But if we find one, how will we ever get there? Take a virtual ride aboard spacecraft of the future based on whole new technologies designed to achieve ultra‐high speeds, which might provide ways to travel to new worlds. The program includes a tour of the night sky as viewed from Maine plus astronomy news updates.
