Caption: Kepler telescope. Artwork of NASA's Kepler telescope orbiting the Sun. The Kepler Mission is designed to discover Earth-like planets orbiting other stars, by monitoring the brightness of over 100,000 stars. The data will be studied for periodic fluctuations in a star's brightness that would indicate the presence of an orbiting exoplanet. The Kepler Mission launched on 7th March 2009 and the telescope took its first images on 8th April 2009.
