Astronomers will be able to image Earth-like planets by 2025

Hi,

I would like to share with you guys a couple of interesting simulations.

This simulation belongs to an Earth-like planet located 4 light-years away, imaged with the European Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), expected in 2025.

This other simulation belongs to an Earth-like planet located 40 light-years away, imaged with the Large Ultraviolet Optical Infrared Surveyor (LUVOIR), expected in 2035:

Finally we can get good images of alien worlds and get good renders based on prior imagery rather than just make up random designs based purely on speculation without a source.

This might mean we could even get good renders of Planet Nine/Persephone/Telisto without sending a probe there!
