American Space Agency NASA is preparing to launch ‘Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS)’ mission next phase from April 16. Under this mission, the planets which are far beyond our solar system have to be discovered.
NASA plans to send the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, or TESS, into orbit from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket set for blast-off between April 16 and June on a two-year, $337-million mission.
NASA’s tweeted about the Planet Exploration mission
The planets in our solar system orbit around the Sun. Planets that orbit around other stars outside our solar system are called exoplanets. In April, we’re launching @NASA_TESS to search the entire sky for them. Discover more about these distant worlds: https://t.co/JPrwXgMQwI pic.twitter.com/P0fh3Zjp2h
