Destination Innovation Play

A new series that explores the research, science and other projects underway at the NASA Ames Research Center.

Kepler Play

The Kepler Mission is a NASA space telescope designed to discover Earth-like planets orbiting other stars. With a planned mission lifetime of at least 3.5 years, Kepler will use a photometer developed by NASA to continuously monitor the brightness of over 100,000 stars in a fixed field of view. The data collected from these observations will be analyzed to detect periodic fluctuations that indicate the presence of extrasolar planets (planets outside our solar system) that are in the process of crossing the face of other stars. The mission is named in honor of German astronomer Johannes Kepler.
