Kepler space telescope Current Affairs, GK & News
Responsible for civilian space program and aeronautics & aerospace research in United States, the independent agency of the United States Federal Government, NASA: National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s planet hunter-Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TISS) has discovered its first Earth-size Habitable-zone Planet named ‘TOI 700 d’, which is one of the few rarest Earth-size planet discovered ..
For the first time have Astronomers have discovered water vapour signatures in the atmosphere of a planet beyond our solar system that resides in the habitable zone (the region around a star which can support liquid water given sufficient atmospheric pressure). Discovery of Water Vapour in Habitable Zone The Astronomers from the Center for Space ..

For the first time, the astronomers at the University College London have discovered water vapour in the atmosphere of an Earth-size planet called K2-18b. They used data from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. The exoplanet “K2-18b” is 8-times the mass of Earth and known as a super-Earth. It orbits a red dwarf star 110 light-years away ..

Astronomers have discovered a new exoplanet using NASA’s exoplanet-hunting space telescope, TESS. The exoplanet is said to be 60 times bigger than our planet and is five-billion-year-old planet. The exoplanet is dubbed TOI-197.0 or “hot Saturn” because of its size and hot temperature. The researchers at Aarhus University, say that this is “one of the ..

Scientists have discovered cache over 100 new exoplanets using data from NASA’s Kepler Space telescope (KST) as well as ground-based observatories. Exoplanet also called as extrasolar planet, is planet that orbits star other than Sun. The discovery of 100 new exoplanets is expected to play large role in developing research field of exoplanets and life ..
