Spacecraft seeks planets that are ‘just right’ for life

This week’s news item, adapted for MEC from a news article originally published in the Guardian Weekly, is about NASA’s launch of the spacecraft Kepler. The spacecraft is using a very powerful camera to look for Earth-like planets in the Milky Way.

You’ll find this story in the News Items section on your Work Area.

You could also direct students to NASA’s website to find out more about the Kepler mission.
