Jerome A. Orosz's "The Revolutionary Kepler Mission"
Launched in 2009, the Kepler mission has revolutionized our understanding of stars and exoplanets.  The primary mission came to an abrupt stop in May, 2013 when the second of Kepler's four "reaction wheels" failed.  I will highlight some of the main discoveries of Kepler, and give an update on the current status of the Kepler spacecraft and the possible science missions it might have in the near future.
