RIP Kepler telescope, you have taken many lovely pictures over the years and increased our knowledge of the universe and all the planets in it.

Awesome gallery link, Nachos. :D

I remember attending a convention panel where Kepler was being discussed. It hadn't been launched yet.

What I love: how fine the evidence is. The actual Kepler images are basically capturing light from stars: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... Hot300.png . It's the interpretations of changes in light and artists' renditions that give them life.
