The Kepler in sleep mode finally woke up.
NASA's $ 600 million Kepler space telescope, which has been operating with nuclear fuel vapor for about a decade since its launch in 2008, came out on Thursday for a four-week pre-emptive phase, communicate. If everything goes well, it may be possible to detect more exoplanets in distant star systems. After waking up from winter sleeplessness, Kepler began transmitting the data obtained from the K2 phase without an 80-day study.
Kepler defines foreign planets with what is called a "transition method," and his discoveries are that at least 20 percent of the stars, like our own sun, have at least one at the same time, the possibility that many star systems have huge planets that are so wide as to potentially contain life. Fuel sources were initially expected to only last 10 sessions during the K2 phase, but the Kepler continued until now. The hibernation phase allowed Kepler to expand the remaining fuel to a smaller extent and direct him to the Earth during his assigned Deep Space Network timeframe.

In 2015, the Kepler team announced the discovery of Kepler 542-b, one of the planets most resembling the Earth in terms of stars, orbits, and magnitude up to now. But Kepler is slowly approaching the end because Kepler's Continued Transitlantic Planetary Survey (TESS) has the capacity to look at much brighter stars than Kepler and does limited spectroscopy to determine the chemical composition of extraterrestrial planets and is particularly good at investigating planets in orbit.
