Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS)
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is a planned space telescope for NASA's Explorers program, designed to search for exoplanets. TESS will survey an area of the sky 400 times larger than that completed by the Kepler mission, focusing on G- and K-type stars to search for smaller exoplanets than previous missions have typically detected.
