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.
