Citizen Scientists Discover Unusual New Solar System Not Even NASA Could Find

Added: 16.01.2018 18:00 | 0 views | 0 comments

BGR News reports because of the amount of data received from NASA’s space missions over the years – including the 2009 Kepler space telescope program – scientists at the space agency are handing off the information to the public so citizen scientists can decipher it. This practice has proven useful on several occasions, the report said, and now it is proving useful once again. For instance, a group of citizen scientists exploring data collected by the Kepler telescope have discovered an unusual new solar system NASA had not managed to uncover on its own. NASA scientists launched the space telescope in 2009 with the primary goal of searching for exoplanets, BGR News reported. The telescope...
