Throwing (star)shade: a super cool way to find new planets

Last week, NASA made a huge discovery: Kepler-186f  a planet the same size as Earth in the habitable zone of its star, meaning it might be able to harbor life.

Astronomer Jeremy Kasdin thinks we could find a lot more like it. See, astronomers like him believe that every star in the galaxy has at least one planet, and that up to ⅕ of those may be an Earth-like planet capable of housing life. The trouble is finding them. The thing is, it’s pretty tricky to photograph a far-away planet with a telescope, partly because  sorta like when you’re smiling for a family photo at the beach  a lot of light gets in the way, thanks to really bright stars like our sun.

Enter the starshade. Starshades are man-made screens that block a star’s light — think eclipse — allowing a telescope to see that star’s planets clearly. For Kasdin and his colleagues, this means developing a giant flower-shaped screen half the size of a football field that separates from a space telescope, flips and flies 50,000 km away to block the light of a star.

If this starshade really works — and so far a sample has worked in 16 trials — we could get direct images of planets beyond the solar system. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll finally find aliens.

You can be mature and respectful and still have a dirty sense of humour.

 You can curse a lot and still be highly intelligent with a massive vocabulary.

You can be quiet and reserved and still be witty and even outgoing in certain circles.

You can be intelligent and sharp-minded and still forget what month it is

you can dance if you wanna, you can leave your friends behind
