    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?

    I don't get how this is possible. Other star systems are light-years away from us, and planets are only a fraction of a light second across. It would be like imaging a pebble ten miles away.
