Kepler’s dead

I apologize. That title is horrible.

If it did get you to click on the article, please do not feel bad about yourself, or about me. This refers to the Kepler telescope, a satellite which has been hunting for exoplanets for an extended period of time.

There are a lot of people who have worked diligently on it for years. They are committed to it and its success deeply. A part of those people’s identities may, in fact, be dead now.

Not all space missions reach such a level of reverence as the Kepler mission by NASA.
