Ready to find some planets? The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is getting ready for launch! TESS is the next step in our search for planets outside our solar system, known as exoplanets. This planet hunter will scan nearly the entire sky over two years to monitor 200,000 of the nearest and brightest stars in search of transits – periodic dips in a star’s brightness caused by planets passing in front of their stars. Led out of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, TESS is expected to find thousands of new exoplanets. Powerful telescopes could then study these planets in more detail to help determine what they are made of, and what their atmospheres are like. Stay tuned for more about TESS as we get closer to launch, which is currently scheduled for no earlier than April 16!

Our newest mission in the hunt for other words is preparing for launch. @NASA_TESS will study nearby stars for evidence they may have orbiting planets.https://t.co/6sF3q1oru9 pic.twitter.com/ULK9Xna4IH

Over the course of two years, our newest planet-hunter @NASA_TESS will scan 85% of the sky to find planets outside of our solar system, known as exoplanets. Watch & learn more about this mission launching on Monday: pic.twitter.com/zaHFrxyc5k

Before @NASA_TESS travels into space to search for planets beyond our solar system – aka exoplanets – it made a journey to @NASAKennedy in FL. Watch to see the preparations for liftoff that have been happening since the spacecraft's arrival in Feb: https://t.co/2uQWCl4p2J pic.twitter.com/F4wPPHf3lN

#GOESS #AtlasV is just the first of SIX launches for @NASA_LSP for 2018.
Next up is @NASA_TESS on a #Falcon9 from Florida.
We have our 1st mission on a #DeltaIV Heavy (@ParkerSunProbe) and our 1st interplanetary from the west coast (@NASAInSight), just to name a few more. pic.twitter.com/bc4vyZdqXV
