China is looking for ‘other Earths’ to colonize

China has announced its first plans to search the stars for nearby habitable planets that could one day expand humanity’s “living space” across the Milky Way.

In the project, dubbed the Closeby Habitable Exoplanet Survey (CHES), officials propose to take a 1.2-meter (3.9-foot) aperture space telescope some 1.5 million kilometers (930,000 miles) to a gravitationally stable intermediate Lagrange point to start Earth and the Sun, according to the Chinese state news service CGTN. Lagrangian points move around the sun at exactly the same speed as the earth, which means that a vehicle at one of these points will be the same distance from our planet indefinitely.
