The space telescope Kepler has provided a huge contribution in the search for star systems with exoplanets, however, we have recently learned that the fuel would be going low, an event that will mark within a few months the end of its life cycle. In theory, the 2020 would be the year of the launch of the new space telescope James Webb, however, the initial estimates spoke of 2019, then the delay on plans for implementation reported by NASA, leads us not to exclude that the launch date may be postponed again.

However, it is not the only new project in the field of astronomical observation, today in fact, is expected to enter the satellite telescope called TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite). The departure is scheduled for the 18.32 from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Cape Canaveral in Florida ( 00.32 in Italy) aboard a spacex Falcon 9 rocket, the goal of TESS will be mainly on the observation and search of new star systems with exoplanets that are potentially habitable.
