Kepler's 'second life' – DLR researchers find six planets
<img align="right" alt="" src="">In 2009, NASA's Kepler space probe was launched, embarking on a mission to hunt for exoplanets. In 2013, due to the failure of two of its reaction wheels, the mission had to be modified. Mission control managed to change the operational modus and manoeuvre the telescope orbiter into a different position in its orbit around the Sun that enabled the mission to continue.<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
