Alien Messages and Earth’s Space Invasion of the Proxima Star System: The Breakthrough Initiatives
The Breakthrough Initiatives, a privately funded program, hopes to pave the way for human expansion outside of our own solar system! The Breakthrough Initiatives will: Listen for extraterrestrial life. Prepare a message from humanity if contact is made.

And finally, prepare a fleet of nanocrafts to leave our solar system and become the first human-made objects to directly visit another star system.
