New NASA telescope can search more than 1,000 planets: study

300-megapixel wide field instrument, it will be able to mimic the Milky Way and other galaxies 100 times faster than the famous Hubble Space Telescope, which was launched in the 1990's.


Washington: NASA's new telescope can be found outside of our solar system in the form of 1,400 new planets, which enables humans to see the largest, deep and clear picture of the universe as well as the existence of supernatural life, a new study Get to know from. With a budget of approximately $ 3.2 billion, Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) is set to launch in mid-2020. With the 300 Megapixel Wide Field Instrument, compared to the famous Hubble Space Telescope, Milky Way and other galaxies Will be able to map 100 times faster, which was launched in 1990. The telescope will scan a small piece of the universe - about two on C degrees - at a resolution higher than any similar missions in the past.

"Although it is a small fraction of the sky, it is much larger than other space telescopes," said Postdoctoral researcher, Ohio State University chief author Matthew Penny in the US.

"This is a unique combination of WFIRST -Penny said- both broad areas and a high resolution - which makes it so powerful for microlencing planet searches."

To find new planets, WFIRST will use gravitational microlensing, which is a technique that depends on the gravitational force of the stars and planets to twist and increase the light coming from the telescope's perspective through the stars.

According to the study, the study published in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement states that this microlencing effect allows thousands of light years away from Earth to find a telescope revolving planets.

NASA said that WFIRST would monitor the 100 million stars for a long time in the center of the galaxy, Penny said that 100 of the planets so far discovered could be equal to or less mass of the Earth.
