NASA Needs Your Help Finding New Planets!

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- NASA is asking for your help finding new planets!

NASA has launched a website called Planet Patrol, where members of the public can collaborate with astronomers to hunt for new worlds.

They'll be sorting through images collected by NASA's Transiting Exo-Planet Survey Satellite -- or TESS.

TESS captures hundreds of thousands of snapshots over the course of a year.

So, if you have some free time, NASA wants your help!
