Additional solar Planets: Trying to identify extrasolar planets in the stars each for housing – is changing the way we think of the universe in real time. In recent months, announced a major discovery of another team collected almost as much as recycling. In September, Kepler-16B became the first planet known to orbit around the binary star (a “circumbinary planet” that Scrabble fans out there). In the months of October and November, it was announced to the other planets, but it was too hot or too large to make the “Earth-like” set.
In December, but was released Kepler-22B, like the Earth, we would like in the beginning with the thermal properties are subject to liquid water. He announced two new planets the size of the objects in the next week. (Although, having wrapped the stage of red giant stars that host planets and these are probably the charred remains of all.)
In the event that the mission has already run its course, and there is little evidence on the website of the Kepler mission, which maintains a degree of progress of the mission. As of now, 61 planets have been confirmed, while the 2326 is in limbo as the taxonomic “candidate planets”. Of course, given the frantic pace of the mission, both of these numbers is likely to change in the time you finish this sentence.
That is the key to the stories I am looking forward to this year, do not miss anything important? What will be the inspiring people and the advancement of science, gathering views on YouTube in the next 11 months?
