Presentation of the BoldlyGo Institute

A Community Committed to Discovery

Space-based science is a cornerstone for investigating profound questions of our existence and destiny. The pursuit of the unknown to uncover answers about life and our universe has led to extraordinary advances in science, technology, and society. Excitement is at the root of exploration, whether roving Mars or discovering new exoplanets. By flying space missions with compelling science goals, our organization advances science and broadens engagement for future space exploration. As scientists, engineers, and explorers committed to advancing human knowledge and civilization, we are compelled to make this effort to open new paths to discovery, to achieve historic firsts in our quest to understand and explore the cosmos, to generate new opportunities for innovation and efficiency in spacecraft development, to expand the pool of resources available for space science beyond the government coffers, and to create new levels of public access and engagement in scientific research from space - and to do these things as soon as possible! The progress of scientific discovery and exploration is a flame that burns brightly in our society and underlies our prosperity.

The Search for Earth-like Planets around Alpha Centauri

A small space telescope to be launched into low-Earth orbit. Featuring a special purpose coronagraphic camera that can block the light of nearby stars in order to photograph exoplanets in the habitable zones of our two nearest neighboring stars in Alpha Centauri. If successful, this would be the first time mankind captures a “pale blue dot” image of a planet other than Earth.

Understanding the Tropical Storms of Our Home World

This low Earth orbit satellite mission seeks to observe and measure the evolution of large scale storm systems that develop in the global maritime tropics in order to improve near term weather forecasts and to elevate confidence in longer term climate change predictions.

There and Back Again: Bringing a Piece of Mars Home

A planetary science probe that aims to collect and return the first samples of Martian materials to Earth without the complexity and risk of landing. As the first round trip mission to Mars, this will break new ground at a fraction of the cost of missions that require touching down on the Martian surface, and would set the stage for future visits to Mars by humans. About BoldlyGo Institute
