Launch of Kepler Space Telescope

The Kepler space telescope was launched on Friday evening from Cape Canaveral, Florida.  It’s mission is to look for earth-like planets in a section of the Milky Way.  Over four years, Kepler will scan about 100,000 stars.  Kepler will look for any regular dimming that could indicate orbiting planets.  For more information, see the Associated Press article here.
