Instead of staring into a single patch of fairly uniform stars, the spacecraft will look at a variety of targets across the night sky, including stars, proto stars, galaxy clusters and supernovae. was just an engineering test, Vanderburg said. only lasted nine days, and we only looked at 2,000 stars. a standard science campaign, Nike Air Max Women Pink they look for 80 to 90 days at about 30,000 stars, he added. this was actually a bit of a lucky find, Vanderburg said. those few stars that they looked at, it just happened to transit once during the time they observed. even with the sun acting as the "third wheel," Kepler is still more wobbly than it us.
It's official: NASA has given the Kepler spacecraft's mission makeover the go ahead, turning it from a pure planet hunting endeavor to an exploratory venture to study a wide range of celestial objects.

( Amina Khan )The plucky little planet hunter was thought by some to be dead in the water when the second of its four reaction wheels broke in 2013, crippling the space telescope. Kepler was able to pick out tiny planets by looking for dips in starlight as the silhouetted planets traveled across the bright disk of their host stars. But it could only do so by staying very still, never wobbling and it needed at least three reaction wheels to stay in place.

groundbreaking spacecraft. But engineers at Ball Aerospace came up with a plan to use sunlight as the spacecraft virtual "third wheel" the pressure from the photons (light particles) hitting the spacecraft would help to hold it in place. Using this method, Kepler can now scan the skies for a new mission, named K2.
service in house because it costs $4. 75 per day to feed each inmate three meals, which is competitive with the cost for private contracted services. Under its new K2 mission, NASA's revived Kepler spacecraft has discovered its first super Earth exoplanet, scientists said.

Even though the NASA spacecraft was hobbled a year and a half ago, the battered telescope has still managed to find a super Earth. At 20,000 miles across, the newly discovered planet is 2. 5 times as wide as Earth and holds about 12 times the mass.
