learned of TESS reset

Spotted a TESS Status Update on the NASA web site.

Oh oh.

I learned that the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite entered safe mode earlier in the week. While the observatory was in a stable configuration, science observations had been suspended. NASA reported the TESS flight computer experienced a reset. Recovery procedures and investigations are underway to resume normal operations. Hopefully they will be up and running in a few days...
