How Much Time Do You Spend Dreaming About Life on Other Planets?
Stop Dreaming About Life on Other Planets and Find Us a New Earth.
The search for planets that can sustain life is getting more interesting thanks to the Keplar Space telescope project. Kepler is a space observatory launched by NASA to discover Earth-like planets orbiting other stars.
The spacecraft was named after the Renaissance astronomer Johannes Kepler and was launched on March 7, 2009.
So far we know about 2000 planets outside of our solar system, very few of which are habitable. However the search has really just begun. It is fun to imagine the different types of life that we may encounter all of which are likely to be very different from life on earth.
In this video from the discovery channel the narrators take us too these far away planets and show us what life may be like in planets that are similar to ours but very different.
More About Kepler.
Kepler is part of NASA’s Discovery Program of relatively low-cost, focused primary science missions. The telescope’s construction and initial operation were managed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with Ball Aerospace responsible for developing the Kepler flight system. The Ames Research Center is responsible for the ground system development, mission operations since December 2009, and scientific data analysis
