One Earth is not enough for NASA

Thursday, March 05, 2009

So there’s this show, you might have heard of it, called Battlestar Galactica. And on the show, the human race is on the hunt for a mystical planet called Earth. Now, we humans today don’t share their problem, because we’re actually on Earth already. But for NASA, that’s not enough. Tomorrow, they are launching a telescope into space that is looking for other sustainable planets. We're checking in with Miles O'Brien, The Takeaway's intergalactic correspondent for more on this mission.

We spoke with William Borucki, the principal investigator for the Kepler Mission, earlier today, click here to listen to our discussion.
