Facebook’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg is on a mission to connect the world through Facebook and bring communities together via connecting them through internet. But this time, it seems him and other world-renowned people are coming together for a bigger thing - the StarShot Project.
The StarShot Project which is being funded by Mark Zuckerberg, Stephen Hawking and Yuri Milner is planning to send small spaceships to our nearest star system - Alpha Centauri.
Now the thing that is extremely crazy about StarShot project is the time it is going to take. The fastest object that is currently traveling is the spaceship New Horizon; if it were to travel to our nearest star it would take 30,000 years. But the StarShot project is going to reduce that time to just 20 years - that is crazy!
The whole concept behind StarShot project is explained in the video embedded below by ViralField. So check it out.
