Kepler Latest News

  • 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).

  • 12/17/14 - Latest updates from NExScI were added to the Kepler Objects of Interest (KOI) table. 8 targets changed disposition from "planetary candidate" to "false positive".

  • 12/04/14 - The ingest of Data Release 24 has begun. This delivery contains Long cadence Lightcurves (LLC) 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 llc 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. 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.

    The location of the files has not changed so the wget scripts will not be recreated.

  • 12/03/14 - The Kepler Objects of Interest (KOI) table (as provided by NExScI) now includes about 40 new entries with all entries now having assigned dispositions. New (optional) columns were added for insolation flux, fitted stellar density, planetary fit type, TCE planet number and TCE delivery name.
