Three Years of Kepler

On March 6, 2009 the Kepler Mission left Earth to begin its search for exoplanets far and wide. In the past three years, it has amassed 2,321 exoplanet candidates and confirmed 61 of them. Just a drop in the bucket compared to what’s out there.

This is raw video from the launch day three years ago. I think it captures the excitement of the whole project perfectly. Goosebump warning.

Let’s keep creating that feeling.
