The TESS, the new generation of planetary discovery by the American Aviation and Space Administration (NASA), is starting today. The satellite will be thrown away today with the SpaceX rocket. The launch will take place at TSI 1.32.
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is expected to be effective in exploring extraterrestrial life. For this reason, in the scientific world, the new telescope is also described as "planet hunter" and "alien hunter".
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the leading universities in the United States, have expressed hope that TESS will exploit the planet to make it possible to host alien life at 50 Earth-size in the first 24 months.
Scientists, who point out that there are 200 billion planets like Earth in our galaxy, have enough knowledge and technology, and TESS says that the discovery could take place in near future.
Other missions of TESS, planned to examine tens of thousands of stars during the first two years of the incarnation, include reviewing various celestial bodies, contributing to the identification of large black holes and stars.
