NASA Kepler Mission
Enjoy this short documentary detailing the NASA Kepler mission which ultimately hopes to be part of a wider goal of finding life on another planet. The video includes conversations with leading astronomy experts on the Keplers mission goal of finding other earth like planets in our galaxy. Using the transit method, Kepler will watch planets orbiting stars. The minor drop in brightness that is caused as the planet moves in front of the star can be picked up by the Kepler’s ultra-sensitive sensors. This information will help scientists in the effort to find other planets that orbit their star at a distance that would allow for the possible existence of life.
