Earth Find ALIENS? Euro Space Agency Launch Telescope 930,000 Miles into Space

Could This Be The Way to Finally Find ALIENS? European Space Agency Will Launch a Telescope 930,000 Miles into Space in 2026 to Search for Extraterrestrial Life

  • The telescope, known as Plato, will monitor thousands of bright stars
  • Researchers hope this will help discover Earth-sized planets that could have life
  • In the coming months industry will make bids to supply the spacecraft
Daily Mail/AP, 24 June 2017


In the search for life beyond our planet, the European Space Agency has announced plans to launch a new telescope 930,000 miles (1.5 million kilometres) beyond Earth.

The telescope, known as Plato, will monitor thousands of bright stars over a large area of the sky, in the hopes of discovering Earth-sized planets that could harbour aliens.

Plato is expected to be ready to launch by 2026.

WHAT IS PLATO?

The telescope will monitor thousands of bright stars over a large area of the sky, in the hopes of discovering Earth sized planets that could harbour life.

Plato (Planitary Transits and Oscillations of stars) will use the 'transit' discovery method which measures the tiny loss of light that occurs when a planet passes in front of its parent star.

It will stare at patches of sky for up to two years in order to capture more than one planetary transit.

The telescope will also investigate earthquakes on host stars and determine their masses, sizes and ages, helping to understand the entire exoplanet system.

.
The project, which is being led by researchers from the University of Warwick, will address fundamental questions such as 'how common are Earth-like planets' and 'is our solar system unusual or even unique?'

Plato's 26 on-board telescopes will use the 'transit' discovery method which measures the tiny loss of light that occurs when a planet passes in front of its parent star.

It will stare at patches of sky for up to two years in order to capture more than one planetary transit.

The telescope will also investigate earthquakes on host stars and determine their masses, sizes and ages, helping to understand the entire exoplanet system.

The project was first proposed in 2014, and now that it has been given the green light, it can move from a blueprint into construction.

Professor Don Pollacco, the Plato Science Coordinator, said:

'The UK community has always been strong in this science area.
'The launch of Plato will give us the opportunity to contribute to some of the biggest discoveries of the next decade answering fundamental questions about our existence, and could eventually lead to the detection of extra-terrestrial life.'

In the coming months, industry will be asked to make bids to supply the spacecraft platform.

Its payload and control and analysis software will be constructed by agencies and institutes across Europe.

Professor Laurent Gizon, director of the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Gottingen, Germany, added: 'Plato will for the first time fully characterise these stars and their planets with regard to mass, radius, and age.

'This will revolutionise the study of the evolution of exoplanets and their host stars.'
