The Sun Isn’t Normal. This Telescope Learned the Hard Way.

Science and Technology

The Kepler mission did a great job at showing just how abundant planets are beyond our solar system, but its hunt for Earth 2.0 orbiting Sun 2.0 was a lot less successful. That’s partly because the scientists who designed the telescope assumed our Sun was a lot more typical of a star than it turned out to be.
