Caption

Illustration of the Kepler space telescope surrounded by planets. The Kepler Mission, which was launched in March 2009, was designed to discover Earth-like planets orbiting other stars. Its initial 3.5 year mission was extended to over 9 years, during which time it surveyed over 500,000 stars, detecting more than 2,600 planets. The space observatory was retired on 30th October 2018 after it ran out of fuel.
