NASA On The Hunt For New Planet

Web Desk (May 19, 2018): The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), was one step closer to searching for new worlds, the United States space agency NASA said.

The spacecraft passed about 8,000 kilometers from the Moon, and the Moon provided a gravity assist that helped TESS sail toward its final working orbit.

The TESS science team snapped a two-second test exposure using one of the four TESS cameras. The image, centered on the southern constellation Centaurus, revealed more than 200,000 stars, according to NASA.
