NASA New Satellite Brings The Search For Earthlike Exoplanets Closer To Home
Now thanks to MIT. Because of pioneering Kepler probe. The theory is our galaxy is teeming with exoplanets. A new generation of hunters is set to be in our closet home. After 9 years of space. Finally, Kepler has found 2600 confirmed exoplanets. implying hundreds of billions in the Milky Way. As the sheer numbers and the target Earth-size planets whose composition. This factors might get hospitable for human life.
This theory raised after NASA mission due for launch on 16 April.
The researchers of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge. the $337 million TESS project aims to identify at least 50 rocky exoplanets. Earth-sized bigger the questions remain. Is earth bigger.at may be close enough to their atmospheres. to scrutinized by the much larger James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).
Like planet keplar. The tests find planets by gazing stars and on the lookout for a dip in brightness as a planet passes in the entrance. They block stars mild which known as the transit. The Kepler view. Saves a hard and fast view. This is far from a distance of 3000 lightyears. NASA revealed The spacecraft carries 4 telescopes.
that will survey a strip of sky extending from the photovoltaic system’s pole to its equator. Which is also known as the ecliptic. TESS will flip over and survey the opposite hemisphere.
Tess bought to measure the brightness of some 2 million stars. scientist Stephen Rinehart of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt. Maryland.said If there’s one planet per star [as Kepler predicts]. we are going to see many. It’ll be a firehose of information.
mild blocked, and the way shortly the brightness dips—present further details. such because of the planet’s diameter. hope so this research will provide more pieces of information about the new planet.
