Scientists release take care of laser detectors hot air balloon looking for extraterrestrial life

The PAMSS detector is arranged in a test room for calibration. PAMSS and a toaster almost as big, can detect the amount of trace gas. Beijing, March 11, according to foreign media reports, scientists have a hot air balloon to fly to the Earth’s high-altitude atmosphere high speed drill, the balloon equipped with a detector, you can detect traces of extraterrestrial life. The Planetary Atmospheric Microscope Sensor (PAMSS), which spanned an hour at an altitude of 105,000 feet above the ground, was then safely grounded with a parachute. The probe, which was developed by NASA and researchers at the University of Central Florida, will be sent to other planets in the future, and the goal of the launch is to test the detectors afterwards. technical knowledge Planetary Atmospheric Microscope detector can detect the concentration of only one millionth of the gas, more than the current technology has been much more active iron worker tools, so you can find other planets on the life traces, even if only a small amount of methane on a planet, There may also be life on this planet, methane is the life of these differentiated inorganic matter occurs.

 

This project is marked by Robert. ‘Our detectors have the power to detect very low concentrations of gas in the atmosphere,’ said Pierre Peale, a physicist at the University of Central Florida. ‘Some of the gases, including methane, are a by-product of metabolization of living organisms. Is low. ‘ Pierre and his team on Sunday in Tucson, Arizona, the detector will be launched, the detector is the use of salt, the size of the infrared laser. The probe and the toaster almost the same, using a technique called ‘cavity laser absorption spectrum’ technology, can detect a trace of gas. Most of the current use of atmospheric detectors are helpless to detect traces of steam and gas. However, NASA hopes to use PAMSS to detect trace amounts of methane on other planets, including Mars, Jupiter’s satellite Europa and Saturn’s moon Enceladus. Scientists have previously detected low concentrations of methane on Mars, and other ‘hot spots’ have been discovered, and scientists believe that these ‘hot spots’ may contain high concentrations of methane. At the moment scientists hope to be more close to the detection of these areas, expect the life of Mars is still alive. The hot air balloon long test goal is to confirm that PAMSS can be in space near the low pressure and very low temperature premise can be general things. Since the temperature of the stratosphere is as low as minus 75 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 59 degrees Celsius). However, the team believes that this detector can also be used on Earth to help detect changes in the ozone layer. But also for respiratory testing, by detecting the gas exhaled to help diagnose the disease. ‘The balloon was flying at 105,000 feet for more than an hour,’ he said. ‘The balloon was flying at an altitude of 105,000 feet, and the expected target was achieved, and the detector descended to the ground safely with the parachute. A bit of data, we expect the appropriate.To analyze all the data is also necessary to some time.

 

Relevant knowledge Is there any extraterrestrial life in the Earth’s atmosphere? Scientific ancestral propaganda advocated in the atmosphere of the earth found evidence of high altitude, confirmed that there may be from the alien life. Researchers at the University of Sheffield and the University of Buckingham claimed that they had collected some samples in the stratosphere 16 miles from the ground, with microcosmic bodies. Using high-altitude hot-air balloons, the scientists collected samples of dust and debris from high-profile airspace, claiming to have found fragments of unicellular algae called diatoms in these samples. They think this may be the beginning of the evidence, you can comment on how alien life is to reach the Earth, perhaps the life is meteorite care came to Earth. This was not the first time in the atmosphere to find life, and raw materials in the sky is simply full of micro-life. In 2012, NASA scientists discovered 314 different bacteria in the Atlantic and the United States over five miles of the atmosphere. The bacteria count for 20 percent of the particles they collect, and scientists conclude that the bacteria are aerated into the upper atmosphere plate beveling machine.
