TESS starts up

Spotted the article over at Spaceflight Now on TESS. The commissioning is complete and the space telescope is beginning science operations. w00t! The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite began its two-year science mission Wednesday. The first dataset will be downlinked in August. It will be exciting to see the new discoveries made. Sara is quoted in the article.
