TESS for KSP i have recreate the TESS satellite for ksp you can download it here : Download (SpaceDock) - https://spacedock.info/mod/1836/TESS Satellite License - WTFPL if you have any problem tell me, i will do my best for resolve it ! (sorry for English mistake i am french ^^)
I am beginning my new series of The Atlas and Delta Legacy Basically in this series I will be covering the missions launched by ULA's Atlas V,Delta IV and Delta II. I will be Starting my series with Kepler Space Telescope Kepler:is a planet hunting space telescope launched by a Delta II rocket on 7th of March 2009. Kepler In VAB RS-27A engine ignition GEM-40 ignition and liftoff! First stage Flight 6 GEM-40's separation and 3 GEM-40's ignition 3 GEM-40's separation <Kerbal>Boosters collided into the the first stage but no problem</Kerbal> First Stage flight First stage separation Second stage Ignition Fairing separation Earth-Escape velocity burn Kepler Separation Kepler is ready for some planet hunting!
On May 10th, NASA announced a staggering 1,284 planets discovered by Kepler, raising the about of know planets by over 25%. But the problem with a huge galaxy-load of planets is that the cool, unique, and amazing ones are hidden among the boring and typical Hot Jupiters/Neptunes. Here, we can pick out the best of the bunch and give these planets the attention they deserve. I have a few favorites as well: Kepler-1229b and Kepler-1593b: These are the two most promising planets of the bunch in terms of finding an Earth Analogue. While not the most Earth-like, these guys could be habitable and open up a new planet type: the Super-Mars. These are planets over 0.6 Earth Radii that receive similar solar energy outputs that Mars does in our own solar system. Both Kepler-1229b (Braciaca) and Kepler-1593b (Quirinus) orbit red dwarf stars and have very similar orbital characteristics. Braciaca is the most Earth-like, with less than 1.3 Earth Radii and a possibly thick atmosphere that could raise its temperature to like something in Canada. Quirinus is a giant rocky planet that gets less light than Braciaca, but a moderate greenhouse effect can get it to habitable temperatures. The size of Quirinus makes it a bit iffy in terms of being like Earth. It could well as be a gas dwarf, or be very dense, or be too geologically active for complex life to evolve. Either way, Braciaca and Quirinus will be remembered as some of the most Earth-like planets around M-Dwarfs.
