The ‘Starshade’ will reportedly act as a shield to block the light form the stars and allow space telescopes to see the planets around them. Simply put, the 'Starshade' is analogous to holding your hand up to the sun to block it while taking a picture of somebody.

According to sources, the ‘Starshade’ would be launched with a telescope. Once in space, it would deploy automatically and move with the telescope.

As reported by the sources, the Starshade is currently undergoing testing at Princeton University, where a small-scale version is under construction to test the light-blocking.
