so we are big star trek and sci fi fans. and therefore, we must explore the possibility of interstellar colonization
What it does
shows you what planets of the known habitable exoplanets we can colonize using some current, theoretical and proposed technologies
How we built it
scraping data from the NASA exoplanet archive, curated the data, built the models, applied the models to the data and came up with theoretical timeframes required for colonization
Challenges we ran into
data is sparse, and incomplete, and often unconfirmed. Plus, the data covers a tiny sliver of the galaxy. Many assumption were made, these could be improved with better physics (and some help from astrophysics guys, please?)
Accomplishments that we're proud of
its a start..
What we learned
the galaxy is a really big place, and we are very far off from technologies which have interstellar colonization capabilities
What's next for build the federation
first contact protocols? or more specifically, expanding the model with beter physics, more propulsion models, more realistic astrobiological and colonization parameters, adding unknown parameters.
