Now what is the Kepler Mission you may ask? Well, it was a research mission set out by NASA to discover unknown earth-size planets orbiting the stars.Since Kepler’s mission and with the help of the Kepler Space Telescope launched in 2009, over 4,000 possible planets, including 30 that are close to the size of Earth have been discovered to potentially sustain life. Not only was NASA able to find multiple planets capable of containing extraterrestrial life, but they were also able to come up with a method to further assist them in identifying where exactly these life forms may be with spectroscopy.This method measures the light released or taken in by objects making a barcode effect, the slices missing from the the bar will tell us which “members” are present in the alien atmosphere.
Considering that the Kepler Mission was one of many, Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate firmly believes, “We are on the verge of making one of the most profound, unprecedented discoveries in history” Along with spectroscopy, researchers have been able to identify the specific location of where life might exist with NASA’s Cassini SpacecraftDuring its final months of the mission earlier last year, they were able to pinpoint Enceladus, one of Saturn’s icy moonsThe surface is covered by an ocean encased in a thick layer of iceSpacecraft Cassini observed gases spewing from a geyser into space, including hydrogen, a vital component for the life of microorganisms, thus suggesting that some form of life could inhabit EnceladusMany may say that because the govt. Hasn’t confirmed the existence of extraterrestrial life, it is simply a myth however you and I both know that the govt. Hasn’t told us things in the past including the well known Area 51, If the govt.
Were to have a broadcast as soon as you got home confirming the existence how would you genuinely feel, if you were to be frightened lets multiply that feeling among about 7 billion other human beings.Lets also keep in mind that the United States alone is still going through thousands of controversies today whether it has to do with our new president, economic state or natural disasters, the govt. Has more than enough to deal with, imagine the amount of additional uproar that would be created if they were to reveal the existence of other intelligent lifeforms. It would be unimaginable.
