NASA’s New Planet Hunter: TESS

Published

on



NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will find undiscovered worlds around bright nearby stars, providing targets where future studies will assess their capacity to harbor life. TESS is a NASA Astrophysics Explorer mission, led and operated by MIT and managed by Goddard. With the help of a gravitational assist from the Moon, the spacecraft will settle into a 13.7-day orbit around Earth.

Four wide-field cameras will give TESS a field-of-view that covers 85 percent of the entire sky. Within this vast visual perspective, the sky has been divided into 26 sectors that TESS will observe one by one. The first year of observations will map the 13 sectors encompassing the southern sky, and the second year will map the 13 sectors of the northern sky.

The spacecraft will be looking for a phenomenon known as a transit, where a planet passes in front of its star, causing a periodic and regular dip in the star’s brightness. NASA’s Kepler spacecraft used the same method to spot more than 2,600 confirmed exoplanets, most of them orbiting faint stars 300 to 3,000 light-years away

TESS will concentrate on stars less than 300 light-years away and 30 to 100 times brighter than Kepler’s targets. The brightness of these target stars will allow researchers to use spectroscopy, the study of the absorption and emission of light, to determine a planet’s mass, density and atmospheric composition. Water and other key molecules in its atmosphere can give us hints about a planet’s capacity to harbor life.

    Good, but the technology is the same, no jump in progress. Why dont u build abservatory on the moon ?

    They should be covering the entire sky as far as I am concerned. Kepler was amazing and it just covered a little piece of sky. Very exciting, will give the JWST something to do.

    It's about time, I thought there was a program on this long ago you just didn't want to talk about. We're all eager to know who else is out there and maybe want to make the Universe disputable to us.

    WEBB hasn't been launced yet. The date of the WEBB launching is continuously moved ahead. Will it be the same with TESS?

    only 16.8 mega pixels?
    some cell phones have a better camera than that.
    i'm disappointed

    Hopefully this has some extreme zooming capabilities and it doesn't get delayed like jwst constantly does.

    Why don’t the mirrors get dusty or dirty over time? Is there nothing floating around in space that could attach to the instruments and foul them up?

    Our beloved Space scientists are on the way to find earthlike planet.
    I wish I could get the answer Are we alone?TESS will answer us.
    When we think space our shrinking mind rises as space.Clash and war ends.
    Expecting a lot from our space scientists.

There are now five different lines of observational evidence pointing to the existence of Planet Nine,” said Konstantin Batygin, a planetary astrophysicist at Caltech in Pasadena.

Some of these clues relate to the gravitational tug of Planet Nine, which appears to be disturbing the distant Kuiper Belt, which is made up of icy objects and stretches from Neptune out into deep space.

Its believed Planet Nine is a “super-Earth”, the name for a type of large world which appears to be very common in the universe.

Doom-mongers have consistently claimed that a hidden world called Nibiru will crash into Earth.

Nasa has denied this theory, previously writing: “The planet in question, Niburu, doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision.

“The story of Niburu has been around for years (as has the ‘days of darkness’ tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables.”

However, it’s feared Planet Nine will eventually destroy the solar system by causing a devastating “death dance”.

It could one day hurtle through our solar system, sending planets “pinballing” into outer space or plunging into the Sun.

WHY NASA QUIT FAKING STAR FOOTAGE YEARS AGO

Published

on

By



Have you ever wondered why all of NASA’s earth and planet pics never have stars? Well… Early footage reveals why they avoid this disaster when faking space. Enjoy!

The JFK audio was edited in by QNfee channel here
They have some great content but may contain a little bad language.

This footage was taken by the military and is probably what helped NASA figure out that faking the stars is challenging and it would be best to just never film them from space walks even when on the dark side of earth. When the ISS passes over the dark side of earth, we should have tons of great footage, but we don’t. They always focus simply on showing us the “curve.” They have cameras well equipped to take photos at night just like many of us do from the ground. Even without special settings, I was able to capture the moon and some stars on my iPhone through the atmosphere. Faking space isn’t a new concept. It’s been going on for centuries. We can all laugh about the fails and fraud, but it’s time for all of us to spread the truth before more deception arrives. Thanks for your help sharing the truth!

Planet X NIBIRU New 2018 – ARRIVAL DATE COMFIRMED Planet X May 2018 MUST WATCH #5

David Meade had believers convinced that Earth would be destroyed by Nibiru, or Planet X, on September 23 – but later claimed October 15 and then November 20 is the date to be wary of.

Meade, a Christian conspiracy theorist, has repeatedly warned about a mysterious planet named Planet X or Nibiru on the far edge of our solar system.

Conspiracies suggested it was hurtling towards earth and set to destroy it on September 23.

Now, he claims that people have misunderstood his Planet X prophecy.

Instead, he’s now claiming we could be in for SEVEN years of nuclear war and natural disasters starting on October 15.

Meade says that its “the most important date of this century or millennium”.

October 2017 may signal “the end of the world as we now know it”.

The huge planet will supposedly pull the Earth off its axis, causing earthquakes, storms and widespread chaos.

And the story goes that codes in the Bible and a “date marker” on the Pyramids of Giza, in Egypt, pinpoint the 23rd as the day of reckoning.

However, not everyone is so convinced, with Nasa claiming that the Planet X theory is just a hoax.
