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 $1,000,000 by April to build one new SPECULOOS (1-meter) telescope by fall of 2017. We already have one potential donor at $600,000, leaving just $400,000 left to raise! Can you help? To accelerate this exoplanet research and ensure MIT can join the SPECULOOS consortium, please consider making a gift to the SPECULOOS project. Call Angela Ellis at 617-253-5796 or email aellis@mit.edu for information.
