Let me paraphrase that ... Will Kepler find another planet similar in size and composition to our Earth that is the same relative distance from its son?Before you answer, I'm not asking if Kepler will find extraterrestrial life ... I'm asking if Kepler will find a planet suitable to life as we know it.
I think they already have. Well, already have found a planet that is similar in orbit and distance from its sun. Not sure about what is on the planet though. http://nai.nasa.gov/news_stories/news_detail.cfm?ID=126
Shows you how out of touch I am with current events. I only know about the original Kepler, and he's been dead a fair while.
Me too, I thought we would be discussing eccentricity.
That's what I thought.But maybe he's just sleeping and dreaming of another best seller.
I have no doubt that it will.
I agree. There are plenty of "Goldilocks" out there.It's not a question of if, it's just a question of when (we can figure out how to see them that is)
Not if we do not keep up funding to monitor its progress .Funding is key .
(sigh)This is the truth.
