Kepler Repeat

As I stated on Facebook the other day, Time and ABC News is finally catching up to the awesome investigative reporting found right here at Nerditronics and reporting on the troubles with the amazing Kepler space telescope.

I won’t rehash everything that’s going on with Kepler as the article before goes over it all and it’s just a few posts down. But short version is it needs 4 wheels to work, one died before and another is failing.
