We are very proud to announce that we have submitted a Mission Concept White Paper for the Decadal Survey on missions to interstellar objects: "Interstellar Now! Missions to and Sample Returns from Nearby Interstellar Objects" This was an intense collaborative effort between a group of international researchers: Andreas M. Hein (i4is), T. Marshall Eubanks (i4is/Space Initiatives Inc.), Adam Hibberd (i4is), Dan Fries (i4is), Jean Schneider (Paris Observatory), Manasvi Lingam (Florida Institute of Technology / Harvard), Robert Kennedy (i4is), Nikolaos Perakis (i4is/Technical University of Munich), Bernd Dachwald (FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences), Pierre Kervella (Paris Observatory)
Join i4is for a journey to the stars!
i4is has achieved much in its short history, and we have ambitious plans for the future of interstellar exploration. But those plans require resources – of people, time and money. If you are enthusiastic about our mission, please join us. Together, we can plot a route to a future amongst the stars – and start to take the first practical steps on that long journey.
