The search for undiscovered exoplanet continues, as NASA is going to launch new space telescopes. It is expected that this space telescopes are much efficient and it can give better results.
According to NASA, it is known that the search will continue for at least two years outside the solar system. And the ground telescopes will verify the result of the initial search. It is expected that thousands of undiscovered exoplanets will be identified in this project, and space and ground telescopes will verify the result if there is any kind of existence of life or water are on that planet.
So far, NASA had just a few exoplanets as a target. But the introduction of new space telescopes and TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) will change it completely. And it is expected that it will give the opportunity to much discovery as well.
The working principle of the TESS will be significantly different, and it will detect the planets by a small decrease in the brightness of the star. So, this principle will help to analyze and verify different planets and the possibility of life on those planets as well.
The old Kepler Space Telescope has discovered about 1284 new planets outside our solar system, and all of them are verified. Among the discovered planets, there are about 550 planets have rocky shaped like earth and 9 of those planets are considered to be an ideal zone for the life.
So, the discovery made by Kepler satellite, which is on the orbit from 2009 has helped a lot in the discoveries in the unidentified exoplanets. And it can be expected that its successor JWST can help a lot with its discoveries of new exoplanets. The design of JWST is a little bit smaller than other telescopes but with its infrared capabilities, it can locate any potential planets where life can exist.
