"Bedtime stories for fading stars" unites astronomers, planet hunters and radioamateurs in their common quest to answer one of humanity's deepest and most humbling questions. Are we alone in the universe? While our most powerful telescopes observe phenomena thousands of light-years away, they still only provide us with a glimpse. Questions can be asked about whether or not the search remains justifiable. However some scientists remain hopeful to make that one discovery that will change the human perspective forever. In our longing to know our place in the universe. To understand our own existence. It makes us wonder. Are the stars really that far or closer than ever before?
