TESS launch!

Post by kobayashimaru » Sun Apr 22, 2018 9:04 pm

hi there!
so, as many folks may already be aware, TESS launched recently.
Scott Manley made an awesome vid covering the TESS launch, so, I recommend watching that or AmateurSETI's technical vid on TESS's specs etc.

That said, I can't wait to see what TESS comes up with.
Kepler has to date found thousands of exoplanets and all kinds of awesome things,
for example, the "Kepler Exoplanet Orrery Index"
and when you compare TESS's specs with Kepler...
who knows what awesome Orrery's we'll be looking at in the very near future!

NB: there are also "Okudagramic MSD-style/LCARS Kepler Orrery overlays" out there also,
for folks wishing to accurize projects etc.

I'm excited about this project too. Let's go TESS, let's go!
