Kepler Mission Design, Realized Photometric Performance, and Early Science
The Kepler Mission, launched on 2009 March 6, was designed with the explicit capability to detect Earth-size planets in the habitable zone of solar-like stars using the transit photometry method.Expand

The Kepler Cluster Study: Stellar Rotation in Ngc 6811
We present rotation periods for 71 single dwarf members of the open cluster NGC?6811 determined using photometry from NASA's Kepler mission. The results are the first from The Kepler Cluster Study,Expand

Selection, Prioritization, and Characteristics of Kepler Target Stars
The Kepler Mission began its 3.5 year photometric monitoring campaign in 2009 May on a select group of approximately 150,000 stars. The stars were chosen from the ~ half million in the field of viewExpand

Stellar Rotation in M35: Mass-Period Relations, Spin-Down Rates, and Gyrochronology
We present the results of a five month photometric time-series survey for stellar rotation over a 40' × 40' field centered on the 150 Myr open cluster M35. We report rotation periods for 441 starsExpand

AGE AND DISTANCE FOR THE OLD OPEN CLUSTER NGC 188 FROM THE ECLIPSING BINARY MEMBER V 12
We present time series radial velocity, and photometric observations of a solar-type double-lined eclipsing binary star (V 12) in the old open cluster NGC?188. We use these data to determine theExpand

Kepler-22b: a 2.4 Earth-radius Planet in the Habitable Zone of a Sun-like Star
A search of the time-series photometry from NASA's Kepler spacecraft reveals a transiting planet candidate orbiting the 11th magnitude G5 dwarf KIC 10593626 with a period of 290 days. TheExpand

WHITE-LIGHT FLARES ON COOL STARS IN THE KEPLER QUARTER 1 DATA
We present the results of a search for white-light flares on ~23,000 cool dwarfs in the Kepler Quarter 1 long cadence data. We have identified 373 flaring stars, some of which flare multiple timesExpand

A ROBUST MEASURE OF TIDAL CIRCULARIZATION IN COEVAL BINARY POPULATIONS: THE SOLAR-TYPE SPECTROSCOPIC BINARY POPULATION IN THE OPEN CLUSTER M35
We present a new homogeneous sample of 32 spectroscopic binary orbits in the young (~150 Myr) main-sequence open cluster M35. The distribution of orbital eccentricity versus orbital period (e- log P)Expand
