Transcript of kepler mission
Four of the planets are less than half the size of Earth.
They orbit in their sun's habitable zone region, where water might exist. 5th period February, 20th 2013 The mission started to look for Earth-sized planets or smaller. It was also started to answer a question, is there other planets like ours in the solar system. How They Find New Planets It is called a photometer, or light sensor, measuring 100,000 stars at the same time for several years.
Then sometimes a planet will pass through blocking the photometer, revealing a planet. Who Was Named After The Kepler Mission and Why? This was because he was the first person to describe the motions of the planets about the sun, to figure out its location.
He also published the first two laws of planetary motion in 1609, 10 years after, he published his third. The most interesting discoveries should be Earth-sized planets in the habitable zone of solar-stars.
Earth-sized planets in Earth-like orbits, that lasts the whole time of the mission.
If they don't find anything they can conclude that terrestrial planets are rare to find.
