So Long and Thanks for All the Planets
Last month, engineers transmitted a command sequence to power down NASA's Kepler spacecraft thereby initiating mission closeout. The end of Kepler is the end of an exciting chapter in exoplanet exploration. We'll pay homage to the mission by playing back some of its science highlights. We'll also consider Kepler's exoplanet legacy -- what it leaves behind and what role it will play in the chapters being written now by TESS and in the near future by JWST.
