Urgent Need

MIT has an extraordinary, time-limited opportunity to play a central role in this historical scientific initiative to discover habitats and signs of life outside of our solar system. Our goal is to raise at least $1,000,000 to build one new SPECULOOS (1-meter) telescope to be installed in Tenerife, Spain by 2018, and to help with operating costs, graduate research assistants and travel. We have potential gifts in the pipeline totaling $700,000 so far! Will you help us find more exoplanets around ultra cool stars like TRAPPIST-1? To accelerate this exoplanet research and bring MIT into the SPECULOOS consortium, please consider a gift to the SPECULOOS project! Call Angela Ellis at 617-253-5796 or email aellis@mit.edu for information.
