That’s why NASA JPL engineers launched the Starshade project, which will be able to block starlight and thus facilitate further research. The idea involves the participation of two spacecraft. One will carry a telescope, the second — a special “star shield” that protects the device from light radiation. For effective operation of the shield will have to overcome about 40 000 km
