Submitted by the Event Organizer
Humans have long wondered about other planetary systems and if potentially Earth-like worlds exist around other stars. NASA’s Kepler mission was designed to answer these questions.
Jonathan Fortney, UC Santa Cruz Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysicsm, focuses on understanding the structure and composition of planets in our solar system and “exoplanets” around other stars.
Fortney is one of four new participating scientists NASA has chosen for the last phase of the Cassini Mission to Saturn, as the spacecraft dives repeatedly between the planet’s inner rings and its upper atmosphere to collect unprecedented data.
