NASA’s Kepler Mission’s first exoplanet candidate confirmed, ten years after launch
It was the first potential exoplanet identified by NASA's Kepler Mission ten years ago, and today astronomers including University of Birmingham researchers have confirmed that the discovery made a decade ago is a genuine exoplanet. Confirmation of the exoplanet, known as Kepler-1658-b, was led by University of Hawai`i graduate student Ashley Chontos , and was presented at the fifth Kepler/K2 Science Conference held in Glendale, CA today (March 6th) and published in Astronomical Journal.
