Let's all be Kepler Sav-vy !

I am a Planet, Illustrations...

If you haven't yet noticed, MooPig really likes Space junk
by Pat Darnell

I have been trying to understand asceticism for most of my life. Who are the modern ascetics? Usually this title belongs to maybe, Olympic, College, and Professional athletes, Coptic Christians, and, Dr Phil; no ... HUNH ?

But now I want to include astronauts. Most astronauts today follow a regime both strenuous and energetic, while also sacred and deific. The key question at space travel conventions might be "How to get flesh and bone into deep space?" No? Ponder that one folks.

While today the news is about pedophilia and slander from usurper world leaders, like Burlesconi "the Burlesquer" of Italy, and Mubarak of Egypt, -- it is good to know that NASA gives us a bargain -- even if it is a little bit elitist and over budgeted.

Where else can you get a one-way space probe trip to Mars, with a spectacular camera equipped rover too, for the low price of only $500 million? Eh?

So, bright readers, tag along with MooPig in its zeal for the great 'final frontier;' out there, or unplug your PC.

"We've worked 16-hour days, 7 days a week toward this," said Geoff Marcy, co-investigator of the mission and a campus professor of astronomy, in an e-mail. "We're exhausted ... but this is a watershed moment in human history."

The mission's planet-hunting satellite has only actively been on the prowl since March 2009, but Alex Filippenko, campus astronomy professor, said it has already made fundamental advances.

Over the last 15 years, traditional methods yielded about 400 confirmed exoplanets. In just over a year, the Kepler mission, which instead finds planets by measuring how much the host star's light dims as a potential planet passes by, has located more than 1,200 candidates.
