Deep-space exploration: TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite)  is a space telescope launched over a year ago, to look at the sky in a repetitive pattern and thereby track exoplanets; looks at the entire sky. “Space telescope for NASA's Explorers program, designed to search for exoplanets using the transit method in an area 400 times larger than that covered by the Kepler mission.”  Unimagined information to come in!
