Scientists predict that the data collected for Roman's microlensing survey will provide an additional bounty of roughly 100,000 transiting planets, worlds that periodically dim the light of their stars as they cross in front of them.
NASA has selected nine scientists to join the upcoming Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter (KPLO) mission.
Dr. Gatebe wants to create a community of students and positive role models that will encourage more minority students to enter geosciences.
Selected programs describe what Webb will study for much of its first year in space.
