Caption

Darwin infrared space telescopes, computer artwork. These ESA (European Space Agency) telescopes will look for signs of life on planets orbiting other stars. The Darwin telescopes will study the planets' spectra for evidence of water and oxygen. The light from six telescopes will be combined at a separate spacecraft (the central craft in the row of seven) and data will be relayed to Earth through a communications craft (lower left). Darwin will be launched in 2014, and will be placed at the L2 Lagrangian point.
