Should be a new Kepler update in about a week...

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Manager updates for Kepler occur about once a month, at the beginning of the month after the science download which takes place right about this time, around the 20th or so every month. According to the last update Kepler has now identified 200 so-called "interesting candidates", which are followed up by ground-based observations...and after final confirmation of these they expect to make an announcement by the winter, a relatively short time in reality but pretty much an eternity in impatient waiting guy years.

At least SpaceX's Falcon 9 should be launching soon, perhaps around June 3rd or so.
