As I did not see any post on TESS in the whole forum, I created this one to talk about it.

The launch will be on Monday at 6:32 PM EST time.

I read in the website that 'science operation will begin at the start of June, with the first data reaching the archive at the beginning of December'.

Due to the delay with the launch, I guess that the first data won't be available until January 2019

Anyway I just made a video on TESS, if you guys wanna check it out: www.youtube.com...

I'll hope it's close enough for me to go there soon. This world is starting to become unforgivable.

Looking forward to seeing the results of any data collected over the life of TESS. Great thread by the way.

Launch was delayed due to technical issues with the rocket but is now scheduled for later today at 6:51 p.m. EDT (2251 GMT)



Fingers crossed for a successful launch.
