image for Kepler Space Telescope Launched Today, Looking For Life! Is There Life Out There?

NASA is preparing to launch the Kepler space telescope Friday to help answer questions that has boggled the minds of astronomers for centuries: is Earth the only habitable planet in the galaxy?

If not, have they ever visited us?

Do they have a big old telescope aimed at us?

Are they actually receiving all those old "I Love Lucy" episodes?

"This mission attempts to answer a question that is as old as time itself -- are other planets like ours out there?" said Ed Weiler, associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate.

"It's not just a science mission, it's an historical mission", stated Weiler. "Plus, the way things are going here on earth, we may NEED another planet to inhabit at any time."

Al Gore: "Amen"
