NASA did amazing work again in space in mankind history. NASA has just released raw data from from Kepler Space Telescope probing the exoplanet like Earth size planet around the star TRAPPIST – 1. Data send by Kepler is processed version. That menas can be easy to read by Intelligent civilization.
Michael Haas, science office director for the Kepler and K2 missions at Ames, said that “We were lucky that the K2 mission was able to observe TRAPPIST-1,”. Many Scientist communities already showed their interest about which part / area they want to research on data given by NASA
Spitzer Space Telescope revealed some data by NASA in February to seven planets orbit the ultracool dwarf star.
NASA official give statement “Kepler’s observations could provide more detail about the gravitational interactions among the planets, and perhaps reveal even more planets around the star, NASA officials said in a statement. [Meet the Planets of TRAPPIST-1 (Slideshow)]”
NASA when created K2’s December-March observation plan, Planets are unknown in TRAPPIST-1’s, and TRAPPIST-1 system is not observa
tion. After some months, NASA Researcher found some evidence of three planets around the star in May 2016, And then Kepler Team added TRAPPIST-1new Star system into mission.
NASA always trying to get in touch in alien World. And trying to get as much as information from their
telescope or satellite and process its data to get more detail about those planets like Earth. NASA is also trying to send Human to Mars in 2020. anyhow so that previously NASA send processed data from voyager Satellite.
“Scientists and enthusiasts around the world are invested in learning everything they can about these Earth-size worlds,” said in the NASA statement. “Providing the K2 raw data as quickly as possible was a priority to give investigators an early look so they could best define their follow-up research plans. We’re thrilled that this will also allow the public to witness the process of discovery”. Geert Barentsen, K2 research scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California,
NASA examine the TRAPPIST-1 system from 15 Dec, 2016 to 4 March 2017 from Kepler as per K2 mission. Data which are collected by Kepler Telescope of TRAPPIST – 1 system is processed and is available on 22 Feb 2017. There are some new Earth like planet (Exo-planet) orbiting the star. Yesterday (March 8), Kepler researchers released the unprocessed data from that survey for astronomers to use in preparing research proposals.
The release is timely because many proposals to study TRAPPIST-1 this winter with ground-based telescopes are due this month, the statement said.
“We were lucky that the K2 mission was able to observe TRAPPIST-1,” said by Michael Haas, science office director for the Kepler and K2 missions at Ames, He is also said that “The unexpected opportunity to further study the TRAPPIST-1 system was quickly recognized, and the agility of the K2 team and science community prevailed once again,.
“The observing field for Campaign 12 [the December-March campaign] was set when the discovery of the first planets orbiting TRAPPIST-1 was announced, and the science community had already submitted proposals for specific targets of interest in that field.
Kepler K2 missions has been discovered 2400 exoplanet around our solar system. The discovery of exoplanet is based on extremely precise measurements of star brightness over some specific time period identify very little dips in brightness of star that indicate planets in front of the star, called the transit method of exoplanet detection.
