NASANASA 又要放大招?将宣布系外行星新发现

NASA will be held in the United States Eastern time on February 22 at 1 pm press conference, announced the new discovery of extrasolar planets. The conference will be broadcast via NASA and official website. The details of the discovery are strictly prohibited before 1 pm. "NASA headquarters of the scientific mission council vice governor Thomas Zurbuchen; University of Liege, Belgium astronomer Sean Carey; Space Telescope Institute of Science Astronomer Nikole Lewis; Massachusetts Institute of Technology Institute of Planetary Science and Physics Professor Sara Seage. & Ldquo;

NASA once again take any major discovery to compete for the eye. Some tabloids will immediately analyze this announcement to see if those words were never used before NASA, and imagine life on other planets. It is clear that this discovery is related to the Spitzer telescope, and some other planets. So I searched for members of the conference that had been published about Spitzer's article. They are all interested in exploring another extrasolar planets like Earth.

Participants in the Sara Seage in 2015 published a very interesting article, wrote above, we in 2013 and 2014, twice observed half-Centaur Alpha B (Alpha Centauri B), a total of 40 hours The We found a similar transition in the data of the system may be with a planet with the size of the planet, the orbital period longer. Our project shows that HST has the ability to maintain persistence, with more than 26 hours of continuous observation of high accuracy photometric measurements. & Rdquo;

Sara Seage also published an article about the Spitzer Telescope, which states that we have proposed a new way of observing the newly discovered offspring Alpha Cen Bb to measure the likelihood of its transition. Some people think that this distance from our nearest extrasolar planets is by far the most exciting discovery, there are many follow-up investigations on the planets, including many lovers outside the astronomy.
