- Kepler vs. TESS - Kepler, the first planet-hunting mission of its kind, "was launched to answer one single question: How common is a planet like Earth around a star like the Sun?" said Patricia "Padi" Boyd, director of the TESS guest investigator program at NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite is NASA's next mission in the search for exoplanets, or planets that are outside our solar system. A science team devoted to TESS at MIT aims to measure the masses of at least 50 small exoplanets that have a radius of less than four times that of Earth - an ideal dimension that could suggest habitability.
TESS the planet hunter is getting ready to launch Monday.
TESS will find signals of planet candidates, Seager said. "We expect to find a whole range of planet sizes, between planets the size of Mercury or even the Moon-our Moon-to planets the same size as Jupiter and everything in between", Still said in a NASA interview.
TESS was encapsulated inside the Falcon 9 rocket's payload shroud last week in preparation for its transfer to SpaceX's rocket hangar at Cape Canaveral's Complex 40 launch pad.

The data will be collected during a two-year period in which TESS will survey the entire sky by breaking it into 26 equal sectors. These are planets outside of the Milky Way that orbit other stars. There are far more planets in the Milky Way than there are stars. They will also be able to parse out some important details about each new planet, like its size and how it orbits its star.
The much-anticipated launch is scheduled for 6:32 p.m. EDT (22:32 GMT), Space.com reports, and will be covered on NASA TV as early as 6 p.m. "You don't really have an image", Ricker said.
