That was good news Borgholio!

I was actually hoping that they would have announced a larger number of planets but i suppose the best things are yet to come. The good news really is that Kepler is working 100% so in time they will find some very interesting planets.

Thanks for the story buddy,
John.

Yep, the key here is that the method used by Kepler actually works. Now we can be confident of finding the more interesting (possibly) inhabited worlds.

Actually I just read recently that there is a software update being done shortly that addresses the safe mode issue.....so it looks like they've done something about it. Hopefully it works.
