Kepler Latest News

  • 4/15/15 - The Kepler Objects of Interest (KOI) table (as provided by NExScI) has been updated and now includes about 1400 new entries. The condition flag entries and the confirmed planets table have also been updated.

  • 4/6/15 - Data Release Notes 24 have been re-released to describe a flagging issue that impacts some Short Cadence fluxes (see Section A.1.9 for details).

  • 3/31/15- The ingest of Data Release 24 continues with ingest of the short cadence lightcurves (SLC) and target pixel files (TPF) The current status for each type of product and retrieval source is described in the table below.

    MAST data discovery portal users should note that the slc tarfiles for each individual Kepler ID will not be recreated until data from all quarters have been received and ingested. The data for individual quarters available through the portal are the same as the online data, so by unchecking the minimum recommended set (MRS), the individual files are available. The MAST data discovery portal is pointing to updated individual target name long cadence tarfiles now. Use the data labels to identify the quarter.

    The tarfiles containing the lightcurves for a specific category of data will also be recreated as the reprocessed data are archived. In the chart below EB= Eclipsing Binary, RG= Red Giant, EK = ExoPlanet+KOI. The EB, RG, and EK categories will be entered when the tarfiles are ready.

  • 2/24/15 - Exoplanet Kepler-447 b has been added to the confirmed planets tables (i.e., published info, and KOI info).

  • 2/12/15 - Data Release Notes 24 are now available.

  • 2/5/15 - The Kepler Q1-Q17 Stellar parameters table and the Kepler Q1-Q16 Stellar parameters table have been updated. 34 columns were removed which contained all null values, and 30 new columns were added. The new columns however are only populated in the Q1-Q16 table for now.

  • 2/3/15 - The Kepler-444 exoplanets have been added to the confirmed planets tables (i.e., published info, and KOI info). Condition Flags and KOI table dispositions were also updated.

  • 1/27/15 - The Kepler Q1-Q17 Stellar Parameters table (as downloaded from NExScI) is now available. This table contains the stellar parameters used in the current reprocessing (Data Release 24).

  • 1/19/15 - Nine exoplanets have been added to the confirmed planets tables (i.e., published info, and KOI info).
