NASA's New Planet Hunter Begins Its Search for Alien Worlds

TESS will cover the southern sky in the first year and the north in the remaining time.

TESS, which stands for Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite is NASA's planet-hunting spacecraft and it has begun its science operations to search for exoplanets - planets outside our solar system - on July 25th.

"I'm thrilled that our new planet hunter mission is ready to start scouring our solar system's neighborhood for new worlds", said NASA Astrophysics division director Paul Hertz in a statement.

NASA's TESS satellite is being operated by scientists who work at MIT, while scientists who work at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center are managing this large project. TESS will be transmitting the scientific data that it will be collecting back to Earth somewhere in August.

Man United holds on to beat Real Madrid
I know what (Ander) Herrera is, I know what (Juan) Mata is, I know what ( Alexis ) Sánchez is, I know what they are... So we prefer to bring kids - on the pitch today we had a couple of kids who were 16 years old.


"Now that we know there are more planets than stars in our universe, I look forward to the unusual, fantastic worlds we're bound to discover", Hertz added.

TESS began to collect data on Wednesday, July 25, the first package information, astrophysics will receive in August.

During that survey, it will focus on the 200,000 brightest stars in the sky - which means the project should identify planets around numerous stars that skywatchers know and love. The mission is expected to find thousands of new planets, some of which could potentially support life.

On April 18, TESS was first shot into Earth orbit by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, and commissioning checks were taking place up until fairly recently, as NASA noted in an update on June 11, according to Space. The satellite would examine and search more than 90% of the sky and it is expected to send back its observations to the ground after every 13.5 days.

The TESS mission aimed at monitoring the brightest and closest stars to Earth for periodic dips called transits in the light.

For this reason, all of the most interesting discoveries will be explored further TESS of the largest ground-based telescopes that can open the planet for the shifts in the spectrum of their star, and built orbital Observatory "James Webb", which will replace the Hubble in the early 2020s.

According to the Agency, TESS has four telescopes with matrices a resolution of 16.8 megapixels, operating in the spectral range from 600 to 1000 nanometers. In terms of participation, there are now over a dozen observatories and universities who are also keeping close tabs on the data obtained by TESS.

TESS will focus on stars between 30 and 300 light-years away and 30 to 100 times brighter than Kepler's targets.
