This is the mission that has me all kinds of excited. TESS has the potential to find 10,000-20,000 exoplanets over the next few years. TESS has been described as the finder scope for the James Webb Telescope, now delayed to 2019-2020.

They are going to land the booster and try to catch a fairing. Should be an action-packed launch today.


demure:

Successful payload deploy! Wooo
