Discovers Earth, NASA Kepler mission

Kepler 452b NASA Kepler Mission  around a sun like stars in the "habitable zone" around the first Earth giant planets that have been discovered, the agency said on Thursday.

According to NASA Kepler 452b, discovered the smallest planet in the habitable zone around. The habitable zone where liquid water could together on the surface of a planet orbiting a star near its the marked area.

In a statement, NASA, the total number of planets that Kepler said confirmation 452b 1030th

"We understand and provide an opportunity to reflect the changing environment, in an old world, can Kepler-452b as big cousin seems" analysis, said John Jenkins, Ames Research Center in Moffett Field NASA in California, to the cause to discover the leadership program, he said. "This planet is in the habitable zone of its star has grown by 6 billion of great years in mind that for important occasions that occur in life that all the ingredients and living conditions that would exist in the last planet .."

The diameter of the Earth is about 60 percent larger than the planet, which is about 1,400 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus. Could rocky planets similar in size to its previous studies show that, although yet to be determined scientists to its mass and composition.

The purpose of the mission of NASA spacecraft Kepler is exploring the diversity of planetary systems formed and launched in 2009 to life.

Austin McDonald Observatory, Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory on Mount Hopkins University Earth Observatory in Texas, Arizona, and the WM Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea in Hawaii Kepler-452 system is used to ensure that the search Kepler Space Observatory.

Chris Carberry, Mars, Mars man, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing, Male Executive Director should be promoted in a series of discoveries of Kepler 452b told that an important springboard.

"The announcement of Kepler was inevitable and imminent passage of time, we can expect many more discoveries," he said in an email. "Improving our ability to give us a living planet can not find (or not) is likely to sustain life -. I can not discoveries in the next decade will introduce themselves can not"

Higgs boson have large wide reaching significances

Physicists at the biggest atom smasher declared September 4 that they are more than 99 % sure they've discovered a new, and hefty, boson compound, that may be the Higgs boson.

Two tests at the Huge Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Europe, display this new compound has a huge of about 125 GeV, with 1 gigaelectron voltage about the large of a proton. The LHC is the most highly effective device on World, able to produce large explosions of power that produce new and unique contaminants in the 17-mile (27 kilometer) cycle beneath Europe and Portugal.

If the development can be verified as the Higgs boson, it will have large wide-reaching significances. Here are five of the greatest.

1. The origin of mass

The Higgs boson has long been thought the key to resolving the mystery of the origin of mass. The Higgs boson is associated with a field, called the Higgs field, theorized to pervade the universe. As other particles travel though this field, they acquire mass much as swimmers moving through a pool get wet, the thinking goes.

"The Higgs mechanism is the thing that allows us to understand how the particles acquire mass," said Joao Guimaraes da Costa, a physicist at Harvard University who is the Standard Model Convener at the LHC's ATLAS experiment. "If there was no such mechanism, then everything would be massless."

If physicists confirm that the detection of the new elementary particle is indeed the Higgs boson, and not an imposter, it would also confirm that the Higgs mechanism for particles to acquire mass is correct. "This discovery bears on the knowledge of how mass comes about at the quantum level, and is the reason we built the LHC. It is an unparalleled achievement," Caltech professor of physics Maria Spiropulu, co-leader of the CMS experiment, said in a statement.

And, it may offer clues to the next mystery down the line, which is why individual particles have the masses that they do. "That could be part of a much larger theory," said Harvard University particle physicist Lisa Randall."Knowing what the Higgs boson is, is the first step of knowing a little more about what that theory could be. It's connected."

2. The Standard Model

The Standard Model is the reigning theory of particle physics that describes the universe's very small constituents. Every particle predicted by the Standard Model has been discovered — except one: the Higgs boson.

"It's the missing piece in the Standard Model," said Jonas Strandberg, a researcher at CERN working on the ATLAS experiment. "So it would definitely be a confirmation that the theories we have now are right." If the newly detected particle turns out not to be the Higgs boson, it would mean physicists made some assumptions that are wrong, and they'd have to go back to the drawing board.

While the discovery of the Higgs boson would complete the Standard Model, and fulfill all its current predictions, the Standard Model itself isn't thought to be complete. It doesn't encompass gravity (so don't count on catching that fly ball), for example, and leaves out the dark matter thought to make up 98 percent of all matter in the universe.

3. The Electroweak Force

A confirmation of the existence of the Higgs boson would also help explain how two of the fundamental forces of the universe — the electromagnetic force that governs interactions between charged particles, and the weak force that's responsible for radioactive decay — can be unified.
