Farewell, Kepler - The Planetary Post with Robert Picardo

Please accept marketing-cookies to watch this video.

In October 2018, NASA announced that the Kepler spacecraft, which revolutionized our understanding of planets orbiting other stars, reached the end of its mission.

Kepler searched the skies for 9 wonderful years, discovering and confirming thousands of exoplanets. Farewell, Kepler. And from all of us at The Planetary Society, thank you and congratulations to the Kepler Mission team.
