Mission: To journey across the stars. We’re going to need a powerful source of energy, a way to store it, and an idea of where to go, otherwise it will be a long, cold and boring search for our alien neighbours! By moving just a few atoms around we can do just that! Using hydrogen in a star, lithium in our batteries, and searching for trace elements on exoplanets, can our trio of experts successfully help navigate the vacuum of deep Space?
We have 'lift off'!
