China is looking for “other lands” 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, called Closeby Habitable Exoplanet Survey (CHES), officials propose to launch a space telescope with an aperture of 3.9 feet (1.2 meters) about 930,000 miles (1.5 million kilometers) to ‘at a gravitationally stable Lagrange point between Earth and the Sun, according to the Chinese news service CGTN. The Lagrange points revolve around the sun at exactly the same rate as the Earth, which means that a craft at one of these points will remain at the same distance from our planet indefinitely.
