Yes, but a lot of data is yet to be analyzed. This is common to most "big science" projects like LHC at CERN.

Kepler Mission Manager Update: Pointing Test Results


Following months of analysis and testing, the team is ending its attempts to restore the spacecraft to full working order as the recent pointing test proved unsuccessful. We are now considering what new science research it can carry out in its current condition.




Isnt just me ? but since a while Lynn i have extremly hard to click your links, each time i try to click it jumps and move one line higher. i always need to quote and copy paste the url. i think it s cause you always put (lately) an 'enter' or 2 between the url= and the name of the link like that:

Michel448a, Very strange about the link or links. They work for me on my end.

I've had no problems with accessing or clicking Lynn's links. I've seen the problem you describe before and it is usually a browser problem. Frequently it is misbehaving plugins that are the cause. Try another browser to see if the same behavior happens to confirm.

Did you try another browser though? I use IE10 and Chrome 28. Did not experience that issue in either browser. Plugins for IE tend to be the worst, which is why I suspect it is the browser/plugins and thus why I suggested trying a different browser to see if the issue is still there. If not, we know its the browser - and we already know it's not the links.

They are looking for something that Kepler could still do. Maybe it could assist in the search for earth orbit crossing asteroids. But I'm afraid it might need it's stabilizers just as much for this task.

Depending on the outcome of these studies, which are expected to be completed later this year, NASA HQ will assess the scientific priority of a two-wheel Kepler mission. Such an assessment may include prioritization relative to other NASA astrophysics missions competing for operational funding at the NASA Senior Review board early next year.

Bids for its use are invited!

[INFOGRAPHIC] Precision Pointing: It's a Matter of Scale
http://www.nasa.gov/content/infographic-precision-pointing-its-a-matter-of-scale/


For four years, the Kepler spacescraft continuously and simulatenously observed and collected data on more than 150,000 stars. Its mission-- to determine if Earth-size planets orbiting in the habitable zone of stars like our sun are common or rare.

Oh! How precise she was.

The universe wastes nothing, it's simply transferred.

Our Milky Way galaxy is crowded with far more habitable Earth-like planets than previously thought - at least 11 billion of them in orbit around distant stars, a team of planet hunters led by UC Berkeley astronomers said Monday.

One in five stars may have an Earth-like planet


We must be careful to define the term "Earth-like"

At a minimum it would need to be in the habitable zone (temperature-wise), roughly the mass of the Earth, nearly circular orbit, stable spin, and a rocky planet with water. This would be a start.

The statement above that one in five stars may have an Earth-like planet can be misleading in that to the layman it might imply that the Galaxy is teeming with Aliens.

An Earth-like planet that could support life as we know it would require a bunch of other conditions for intelligent life to form.

In the future we will be able to catalog these planets into these characteristics and maybe we can find one or more that could meet the requirements. Time will tell.

A signal coming from one of these candidates would be most intriguing to be sure.

@William, and Julie, and Chris.

This count sounds reasonable.

New Kepler data analysis and research also show that most stars in our galaxy have at least one planet.

Life as we know it, NO. imho


Kepler Discoveries Include 833 New Candidate Planets

Scientists from around the world are gathering this week at Ames Research Center to discuss the latest findings from the analysis of Kepler Space Telescope data. Included is the discovery of 833 new candidate planets, ten of which are less than twice the size of Earth and orbit in their sun's habitable zone. New Kepler data analysis and research also show that most stars in our galaxy have at least one planet.

Administrator Bolden's Blog

This week NASA is holding a conference of 400 scientists from around the world to discuss the findings that continue to emerge from our amazing Kepler mission.
These scientists, both inside and outside government, will continue to explore potential planets outside our solar system for years to come based on the spacecraft’s groundbreaking work.

Latest number of Berkeley On Line magazine, which I receive in my mail after a small donation to SETI@home, has an article on planets found by Berkeley astronomers in Kepler data. Very interesting.

latest..

You may have thought that NASA's Kepler spacecraft was finished. Well, think again. A repurposed Kepler Space telescope may soon start searching the sky again.

A new mission concept, dubbed K2, would continue Kepler's search for other worlds, and introduce new opportunities to observe star clusters, young and old stars, active galaxies and supernovae.
