China Preparing to launch a new space mission called Earth 2.0. The mission aims to findn Exoplanet It is another matter that humans can even inhabit there.

The Chinese Academy of Sciences has announced that the satellite for the mission is in the final stages of design. If approved by the parties concerned, it will be built immediately and by the end of 2026 the target will be flown on Long Mac rockets.

As quoted detikINET Independent: From Thursday (14/4/2022) the satellite will have 7 telescopes that will observe space from a distance. Six telescopes will observe the Cygnus-Lyra constellation previously studied by the Kepler Telescope.

As the planets are located outside our solar system, the Chinese telescope will try to find exoplanets with a focus on hunting for new planets with favorable conditions for human habitation.

Jian Ge, the astronomer who led the mission, said that our satellites would be 10 to 15 times more powerful than the Kepler Telescope in terms of space surveying capacity.

This telescope detects whether a distant star is changing its brightness, possibly due to its presence. Exoplanet It passes. Larger telescopes can observe a wider area than a Kepler telescope.

The Chinese satellite is designed to see 1.2 million stars in a single observation. The Seventh Telescope will be used to detect planets orbiting stars.

So far, China has deployed about 300 scientists to work on the project Exoplanet This. That’s not enough, more experts will be recruited later.
