Is There Anybody Out There?
A Catalyst article about the Kepler spacecraft, which is used to look for extra-solar planets. Scientists are hoping to shine light on the age old question of life’s existence elsewhere in the Universe using a new space-based telescope named Kepler. Launched on 6 March 2009, Kepler is searching the sky for small, rocky, Earth-like planets within our galaxy. This exploration will reveal how common it is for other solar systems to contain planets with the right conditions for life.
