Kepler Gets Back To Work

Kepler Mission Manager Update - Kepler Returns to Science

"After a safe mode event that lasted 144 hours, NASA's Kepler spacecraft returned to science data collection at 2:45 p.m. EDT Sunday, March 20. During the spacecraft's recovery from the safe mode event, the project team performed the spring quarterly roll and downloaded science data collected since Feb. 4 from the spacecraft's solid-state recorder. That data will be sent to the Kepler Science Operations Center at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., where the science team will evaluate it. An anomaly response team will continue to evaluate the spacecraft data to determine the cause of the safe mode event."
