NASA says Star Trek’s Vulcan may not exist, but Spock’s home system “40 Eridani” is real

 

NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – It takes a little imagination to wish some favorite fictional universes into existence. But, for legions of “Star Trek” fans, they don’t have to wish: one star system really exists in our Milky Way galaxy.

In Star Trek lore, Vulcan is the home of logic, learning and the deeply beloved first officer Mr. Spock. While Vulcan is fictional, the star system it belongs to–40 Eridani–is very real. It’s located only 16.5 light-years away from Earth and its primary star can be spotted with the naked eye.

The green area surrounding 40 Eridani A depicts the habitable zone of the star, the area where temperatures would be right for liquid water, an essential ingredient for life (Vulcan or otherwise). The habitable zone of Vulcan is closer to its dwarf star than the Earth's is to the sun because 40 Eridani A is cooler and dimmer than our sun. (NASA)

Abrams and crew have done an outstanding job of retooling the franchise and bringing a new perspective to the well-known saga. This film will definitely be one of the best features of the summer season.

Here is what many thought could not be done! In just over two hours, J. J. Abrams has masterfully and skillfully crafted a bridging of the multitudinous lore of Star Trek with a fresh and compelling telling of its beginning. Having done so with a cast of fresh faces who have captured their characters previous personas and given them new life, is all the more to Abrams credit and these gifted actors as well. This is mighty fine storytelling here, folks. And, have no doubts, you will be wanting more! «Read the rest of this article»
