    Default NASA on a new mission to find 1400 new planets.



    A NASA telescope that will give humans the largest, deepest, clearest picture of the universe since the Hubble Space Telescope could find as many as 1,400 new planets outside Earth's solar system, new research suggests.


    The new telescope paves the way for a more accurate, more focused search for extraterrestrial life, according to researchers.

    The study, by a team of astronomers at The Ohio State University, provides the most detailed estimates to date of the potential reach of the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope mission (nicknamed WFIRST.) It was designed by NASA and astronomers throughout the country to find new planets and research dark energy, the mysterious force that pervades otherwise empty space and that could hold the keys to understanding how the universe expands. Their work was published Feb. 25 in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series.

    I've been volunteering with Zooniverse for yrs. (5?).
    The search for Planet #9 is rebooted. aka Backyard Worlds.
    Exoplanets is rebooted
    And Galaxy zoo, classifying images of galaxies is still ongoing.
    Mainly because new data has poured in from NASA and they don't have the staff or the time to interpret it all. There is soooooo much.
    Not obsessed or anything. I'm hallway monitor at my li'l girls parent led school on Fridays. I got nothing to do. (Wink)
