You’ll be able to breathe once more, area followers — NASA has returned the Kepler area telescope to regular after a nerve-wracking weekend spent in an emergency mode. It is nonetheless not clear what triggered the disaster (a deliberate maneuver wasn’t at fault), however the workforce plans to double-examine techniques for the subsequent week earlier than carrying on with its prolonged mission. Let’s simply hope this does not occur once more. Kepler barely managed to outlive its first huge incident, and there is no assure that it will be so fortunate the third time round.
