We describe the catalogs assembled and the algorithms used to populate the revised TESS Input Catalog (TIC), based on the incorporation of the Gaia second data release. We also describe a revised ranking system for prioritizing stars for 2 minute cadence observations, and we assemble a revised Candidate Target List (CTL) using that ranking. The TIC is available on the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes server, and an enhanced CTL is available through the Filtergraph data visualization portal… 
The TESS Mission Target Selection Procedure
We describe the target selection procedure by which stars are selected for 2 minute and 20 s observations by TESS. We first list the technical requirements of the TESS instrument and ground systems
TESS Science Processing Operations Center FFI Target List Products
The delivery to the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes of target pixel and light curve files for up to 160,000 targets selected from full-frame images (FFI) for each TESS Northern hemisphere observing sector provide TESS users with high quality, uniform pipeline products for a selection of FFI targets.
Ninety-seven Eclipsing Quadruple Star Candidates Discovered in TESS Full-frame Images
We present a catalog of 97 uniformly vetted candidates for quadruple star systems. The candidates were identified in TESS full-frame image data from sectors 1–42 through a combination of
The TESS Faint-star Search: 1617 TOIs from the TESS Primary Mission
We present the detection of 1617 new transiting-planet candidates, identified in the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) full-frame images observed during the Primary Mission (Sectors 1–26).
Calibrated Full-frame Images for the TESS Quick Look Pipeline
We describe calibrated TESS images that serve as the input to the MIT Quick Look Pipeline, which we are releasing as a High Level Science Product (HLSP). We also outline the python package tica,
The TESS-Keck Survey: Science Goals and Target Selection
The Kepler and TESS missions have demonstrated that planets are ubiquitous. However, the success of these missions heavily depends on ground-based radial velocity (RV) surveys, which combined with
Quick-look Pipeline Lightcurves for 9.1 Million Stars Observed over the First Year of the TESS Extended Mission
We present a magnitude-limited set of lightcurves for stars observed over the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) Extended Mission, as extracted from full-frame images (FFIs) by MIT’s
Around Which Stars Can TESS Detect Earth-like Planets? The Revised TESS Habitable Zone Catalog
In the search for life in the cosmos, NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission has already monitored about 74% of the sky for transiting extrasolar planets, including potentially
The Magellan-TESS Survey. I. Survey Description and Midsurvey Results
Kepler revealed that roughly one-third of Sunlike stars host planets orbiting within 100 days and between the size of Earth and Neptune. How do these planets form, what are they made of, and do they
The Breakthrough Listen Search for Intelligent Life: Searching for Technosignatures in Observations of TESS Targets of Interest
Exoplanetary systems are prime targets for the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). With the recent uptick in the identification of candidate and confirmed exoplanets through the work of


The TESS Input Catalog and Candidate Target List
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will be conducting a nearly all-sky photometric survey over two years, with a core mission goal to discover small transiting exoplanets orbiting
Gaia Data Release 2
Context. The Gaia Data Release 2 (DR2) contains more than half a million sources that are identified as variable stars. Aims. We summarise the processing and results of the identification of variable
The PASTEL catalogue: 2016 version
The bibliographical compilation of stellar atmospheric parameters (Teff, logg, [Fe/H]) relying on high-resolution, high signal-to-noise spectroscopy started in the eighties with the so-called [Fe/H]
Gaia Data Release 2
The dramatic improvement brought by Gaia DR2 astrometry of SSOs is demonstrated by comparisons to the archive data and by preliminary tests on the detection of subtle non-gravitational effects.
A Catalog of Cool Dwarf Targets for the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite
We present a catalog of cool dwarf targets ( , Teff ≲ 4000 K) and their stellar properties for the upcoming Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), for the purpose of determining which cool
Gaia Data Release 1 Summary of the astrometric, photometric, and survey properties
Context. At about 1000 days after the launch of Gaia we present the first Gaia data release, Gaia DR1, consisting of astrometry and photometry for over 1 billion sources brighter than magnitude 20.7.
Gaia Data Release 2
Context. The ESA Gaia mission provides a unique time-domain survey for more than 1.6 billion sources with G ≲ 21 mag. Aims. We showcase stellar variability in the Galactic colour-absolute magnitude
Reanalysis of the Gaia Data Release 2 photometric sensitivity curves using HST/STIS spectrophotometry
Context. The second data release (DR2) from the European Space Agency mission Gaia took place on April 2018. DR2 included photometry for more than 1.3 × 109 sources in the three bands G, GBP, and
Hot Stuff for One Year (HSOY) - A 583 million star proper motion catalogue derived from Gaia DR1 and PPMXL
The HSOY catalogue was created as a hybrid catalogue between Gaia-DR1 and ground-based astrometry, featuring proper motions (but no parallaxes) for a large fraction of the DR1 objects, to provide improved proper motions partly based on Gaia data.
Gaia Data Release 2
Context. For Gaia DR2, 280 million spectra collected by the Radial Velocity Spectrometer instrument on board Gaia were processed, and median radial velocities were derived for 9.8 million sources
