      Tu Aug 7 6pm 24 7pm Francophile Sciences SIG Free Event
      Title: The Kepler Mission: Zeroing in on Habitable Earths
      Douglas Caldwell – Kepler Instrument Scientist, SETI Institute
      RSVP: In order for chapter officer to best estimate head count for food:
      http://www.eventbrite.com/tickets-external?eid=3536731459&ref=etckt

      6:00pm: Networking/Light Dinner
      7:00pm: Presentation
      8:30pm: Adjourn

      NASA's Kepler Mission was launched on March 6, 2009 with the goal of
      determining the frequency of Earth-size planets in the habitable zone of solar-like
      stars. Kepler continuously and simultaneously monitors over 150,000 stars using a
      0.95 meter Schmidt telescope and a 95 megapixel CCD camera searching for the
      small change in brightness as a planet transits its host star. The driving design
      requirement was the ability to detect the 84 parts-per-million signal from an
      Earth-size planet transit. As such, stability of the instrument and continuity of
      the data are keys for success. Kepler has been collecting data for over three years
      and has already revolutionized the field of extrasolar planets, detecting over 2,300
      planet candidates, the first Earth-size planets, the first circumbinary planets, and
      over 360 multiple-planet systems. The project was recently awarded a mission
      extension by NASA so that Kepler can continue collecting data for another four years.
