  • Ten days of commissioning data (Quarter 0) and 33 days of science data (Quarter 1) yield instrumental flux time series of ~150,000 stars that were combed for transit events, termed threshold crossing events(TCE), each having a total detection statistic above 7.1?. TCE light curves are modeled as star+planet systems. Those returning a companion radius smaller than 2RJ are assigned a Kepler Object of Interest (KOI) number. The raw flux, pixel flux, and flux-weighted centroids of every KOI are… CONTINUE READING
