Ancient Suns website was created by Carl Martin 2001:0524. The purpose was to look at stars in the solar neighborhood and to discover which ones are the likeliest systems to harbor planets like Earth.

If enough excitement can be generated about this website, Ancient Suns will once again pay for formal hosting of the website and return to http://ancientsuns.com. For the time being, this site will remain at WordPress.com, exploring the possibilities. The purposes include,

  • Exploring the nature of nearby star systems,
  • Discussing the requirements for habitable planets for humanity,
  • Creating realistic worlds in fiction to inspire others to reach for the stars.
