NASA's New Planet Hunter Begins Its Search for Alien Worlds

quote [ NASA's newest planet-hunting telescope is officially at work.

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), which is designed to hunt for alien worlds around stars not too far from the sun, began gathering science data Wednesday (July 25), members of the instrument team announced yesterday (July 27).

TESS will send that initial data to Earth in August, with new observations arriving every 13.5 days after that, mission team members said in a statement. ]

Hoping scientists make the most of TESS's data.
