NASA launches Planet Hunter telescope Kepler on Friday night. It hunts for Planets like Earth far away in Milkyway galaxy. From so many years so many searches and researches have been made to find out if any other Planet is out there having Earth’s like atmosphere and any living species. But so far we are still alone and this Kepler is aimed to stare at 100,000 stars and their orbiting planets near the Cygnus and Lyra constellations.
Right now it won’t be looking for signs of life. That is for future space craft.
