NASA telescope to look for other Earths. NASA has successfully launched a rocket carrying a planet-hunting telescope. Scientists believe there are good chances of finding a planet like ours somewhere out there in the galaxy. The planet’s atmosphere should neither be too hot nor too cold. The planet would also need water. NASA’s space science boss Ed Weiler agreed that the mission was a historical landmark in space exploration. However, he couldn’t say whether or not the telescope would find another Earth.
Or are there other Earths out there? Listen to the NASA scientist who's answered those questions and hear what he found. The post Are we alone in the Universe? Or are there other Earths out there? appeared first on BECAUSE IT MATTERS. More from BECAUSE IT MATTERS.

Kepler was a technically difficult challenge, Fanson says. It took nearly 25 years to go from a far-off dream to reality. That drift is only about 1/56th of the angle resolved by a good ground-based telescope. There aren’t many disturbances in space, except for the solar wind pushing up against Kepler ’s photovoltaic panels.
Stuart Clark: The planet announced on Tuesday may be the most Earth-like to date, but there are better candidates for alien life waiting to be discovered. The Kepler space telescope is the most successful planet-finding instrument ever built. On Tuesday, it chalked up its 1,000th confirmed planet discovery and one of those, Kepler 438b, was named the most Earth-like planet yet found. It was crowned because it is only 12% larger than our world and orbits a star that gives it 40% more illumination, but it will not hold the title for long – and sooner or later Earth’s twin will be discovered
This is a critical step toward answering a question that has come down to us across 100 generations of human history: Are there other planets like Earth, or are we alone in the galaxy?"The first images that the spacecraft has sent back to NASA show a "vast starry field" in the Cygnus-Lyra region of the Milky Way galaxy, according to. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Are Earths frequent or are they rare? And this gives us that answer. It's the next step in mankind's exploration of the galaxy. It's how many are out there, and perhaps the most important question of all, are there any 'Earths' out there?"

Now, thanks to Kepler’s successor, we may know the best places to find them. Follow Shannon Stirone on Twitter.
