NASA astronomers have announced that the Kepler orbit telescope has discovered three planets in the Lyra and Cygnus constellations. The planets have been dubbed Kepler-69c, Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f. The two latter planets have oceans that can sustain life. They are located in the lower part of the so-called “habitable zone” and orbit Kepler-62. They are by far the most hospitable super-Earth size planets that have been found to date.
NASA’s recent survey has discovered three planets, which are very similar to Earth. Two of the three planets are being called “super-Earth” found by the Kepler planet-hunting satellite. According to the journal Science these two planets might be covered in oceans and hence have life.
Scientists announced Thursday the discovery of three planets that could be habitable worlds outside our own solar system.
Could global warming be one big misconception? The research group The Right Climate Stuff (TCRS) made up of ex-NASA employees believe so. In their report they point out that NASA makes it seem like global warming is solely a human causation and because of that we must reduce our carbon footprint. However, the scientists and engineers who used to work for the acclaimed space station believe other factors are at play and are not being highlighted.
