SPACE INTERFEROMETRY MISSION: KEY SCIENCE PROJECT
Discovery of Planetary Systems with SIM



NASA's 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.

This website will frequently update our ground-based work on the target stars and the candidate reference stars. Science results for this project can be accessed from our online catalog
