Launched on April 18, 2018, NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has been systematically surveying about 200,000 of the brightest stars over most of the sky looking for periodic dips in brightness indicating the presence of transiting exoplanets. A follow up to NASA’s highly successful Kepler mission, TESS is approaching the end of its two-year primary mission with its extended mission scheduled to start in July 2020.
