Kepler Space Telescope

1 post in this topic

An ingenious work-around may allow the Kepler Space Telescope to begin observing exoplanets again. This would involve changing the orientation of the spacecraft so that it can be balanced against the influence of the solar wind. The new observations would, of necessity, be of portions of the sky other than the former 'Kepler Field' centered on the constellation Cygnus. The new field would need to be changed several times a year to avoid Sunlight getting into the telescope. http://www.nasa.gov/kepler/a-sunny-outlook-for-nasa-keplers-second-light/#UpS-EBweQc8
