The Kepler Tour
A rookie astronaut is sent 500 light years into space in search for the Earth-like planet, Kepler 186-f. Kepler 186-f is the closest planet to Earth that may be able to sustain life.The rocky planet contains very little or no vegetation and is the optimal distance from its sun to contain life and water. However, the planet is about 500 light years away and orbits an M dwarf, a star half the size of the sun. 1 year on the planet is 130 days on Earth. This astronaut’s mission is to study the planet and collect data to be sent back to Earth. Depending on his findings, humanity could have found a new home. However, along his journey he encounters something he never expected.
