Large ultraviolet / visible / infrared detection Satellite (Large Ultraviolet Optical Infrared Surveyor, LUVOIR) will replace Hubble telescope and the upcoming James Wyber Space Telescope (JWST), let people go to the "Earth 2.0" goal again!
A class of planets running around other stars is very difficult to discover, detecting them beyond the current planned space mission, but scientists are developing technologies that can perform this search task.
Scientists said: "Luvoir is the tool we need. Through it, we can find other livable worlds and lives in the Milky Way."
Luvoir is the latest alternative to Hubble Space Telescope, which is designed to observe the goal of ultraviolet, visible light, and infrared rays, compared to infrared function compared to infrared functions.
One of its main scientific objectives is to find and describe a planetary planet around the nearby star. The telescope is strong enough, you can find about 100 other planets, which can then be observed in detail to find life evidence other than the solar system.
Scientists said: "I am looking forward to getting 'we are lonely in my life.' The answer to this problem."
Although the new task will be leaded by NASA, it is also possible to cooperate with partners such as European Space Administration (ESA), let Leicester's experts can invest in the design, manufacturing and testing of the task.
