NASA Gives Up on Resurrecting Kepler Telescope

It looks like the excellent mission of the Kepler telescope will be coming to a close. After hardware failure and attempts to restart, NASA has officially called the mission at an end.

The telescope and imaging equipment on Kepler are still functioning well, so NASA is now inviting researchers to submit proposals to use them for additional science missions that can work even with the telescope's limited pointing capabilities.
