Event Details


A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the NASA TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite). The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite will discover thousands of exoplanets in orbit around the brightest stars in the sky. In a two-year survey of the solar neighborhood, TESS will monitor more than 200,000 stars for temporary drops in brightness caused by planetary transits. This first-ever spaceborne all-sky transit survey will identify planets ranging from Earth-sized to gas giants, around a wide range of stellar types and orbital distances. No ground-based survey can achieve this feat.

Launch Site: Space Launch Complex 40, Cape Canaveral, FL
