Description: Dr With the success NASA has had using rovers on Mars to search for organics & the possibility that life may have existed on the Red Planet, NASA is now developing other types of rovers that will also search for organics & life in our own backyard. Hedgehog is a rover designed to explore asteroids & comets, and the Buoyancy Rover is being built to explore the oceans of moons orbiting Jupiter & Saturn.
And as we look for life in our Solar System, the “Search for Life on Other Worlds Continues”, as we look for Earth like planets revolving around other stars in our galaxy… More than 1,000 exoplanets have been discovered by Earth based telescopes & the Kepler space telescope, since the first exoplanet was discovered more than 20 years ago.
