SPACE INTERFEROMETRY MISSION: KEY SCIENCE PROJECT
Space Interferometry Mission will measure the positions and motions
of stars with an accuracy over 100 times greater than any previous
measurement, allowing new realms of science
to be explored.
Our team will use SIM to search for terrestrial-class and larger planets
around nearby stars.
