In this episode, some astronomers, a former astronaut, the current director of the Space Telescope Science Institute as well as the wife of Carl Sagan himself, got together and wrote a white paper that makes the case for a telescope, named after the famous astronomer Carl Sagan, that will look for and directly image planets like Earth around other stars.
