The Kepler Mission is a space telescope orbiting the Sun for a 7.5-year mission to discover planets around other stars.
It has so far discovered more than 2300 exoplanets -- the vast majority of all known -- and is closing in on its goal to find another Earth, a rocky planet in the “Goldilocks zone” where life might exist.
Kepler has even found Tatooines, planets orbiting double stars, as in the fictional Luke Skywalker’s home planet in Star Wars, and it has found other solar systems with many planets.
The Kepler Mission has improved our ability to see pulsations and variability in stars by 100 to 1000 times better than with ground-based telescopes.
From this unprecedented improvement, we are looking right into the hearts of stars using a method called asteroseismology.
Come on a trip to Orion at 200 million times the speed of light, accompanied by the real music of the spheres, and hear about the new Keplerian revolution.
