(NASA/Johnson Space Center) Smaller and lighter than traditional solar panels, the Roll-Out Solar Array, or ROSA, consists of a center wing made of a flexible material containing photovoltaic cells to convert light into electricity.
Our knowledge of the galaxy just expanded significantly, thanks to NASA's Kepler space telescope. The exoplanet-finding machine allowed the agency to add 219 new planet candidates to their growing list. 10 of those planets are around the size of Earth and are around the range away from a star where water might pool on their surface.

NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission spacecraft completed 1,000 days in orbit around the red planet on June 17.
NASA is making an exoplanet discovery announcement, live stream it here.
Research teams at NASA working with Kepler Space Telescope yesterday announced that they’ve identified 219 possible new planets. Ten, they suspect, are pretty Earth-y. For those not in the know, Kepler is one […] The post We Found Another Ten Earth-Esque Planets! appeared first on Geek.com.
NASA's planet-hunting telescope has found 10 new planets outside our solar system that are likely the right size and temperature to potentially support life, broadly hinting that we are probably not alone, per the AP. After four years of searching, the Kepler telescope has detected a total of 49 planets...

Rocky worlds discovered by Kepler telescope are right distance from their parent stars for water to pool on the surface Astronomers have added 219 candidates to the growing list of planets beyond our solar system, 10 of which may beShow More Summary
These days astronauts are some of the healthiest and physically robust individuals that NASA can get a hold of. But one day we may see all kinds of people going to space, even those with heart conditions. Shelbi Klingsporn, a Nebraska high school student had the idea to test whether an existing pacemaker is able […]
Astronomers are ecstatic.
NASA’s Kepler team has released its latest batch of planet candidates and they fall into two kinds: ones like Earth and those like mini-Neptunes
NASA's Kepler space telescope team has released a mission catalog of planet candidates that introduces 219 new planet candidates, 10 of which are near-Earth size and orbiting in their star's habitable zone, which is the range of distance from a star where liquid water could pool on the surface of a rocky planet.
NASA's Juno spacecraft was racing away from Jupiter following its seventh close pass of the planet when JunoCam snapped this image on May 19, 2017, from about 29,100 miles (46,900 kilometers) above the cloud tops.
Are we alone in the universe? Are there other planets like Earth in the galaxy? Could they harbor life? NASA’s Kepler telescope spent four years staring long and hard at a small fraction of the night sky to help answer those questions. On Monday, mission scientists said the most sophisticated and...

Space telescope finds 10 new planets outside our solar system that could potentially have liquid water and support life.
Scientists are using the Kepler space telescope to determine how many exoplanets our galaxy may harbor. And just maybe they'll answer the question: Are we alone?
