Passing the Torch: Kepler's Amazing Discoveries Propel NASA's TESS Mission into Orbit to Search for Earth's Closest Cousin

Our understanding of the universe has changed drastically over the past 30 years. With the launch of NASA Ames' Kepler spacecraft in 2009, remarkable progress has been made in discovering planets orbiting other stars. Recent innovations in astronomy enable us to pursue one of humanity's greatest questions; Are we alone in the Universe? From the Kepler Mission to NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), vast data collection with new telescopes will revolutionize the fields of asteroseismology and exoplanetary science. Dr. Jon Jenkins showcases the accomplishments of the Kepler Mission, the new discoveries being made by the TESS, and describes the future of exoplanet research.
