Q3 Data Release Annoucement

The Kepler team announced yesterday the release of Q3 data has moved up from June 2012 to September 23rd. Q3 is about 90 days of additional data (bringing the time baseline to about 210 days). The press release also mentions Planet Hunters by name (thanks Kepler team!).

We just heard the news yesterday, so we’re starting to discuss and plan now about how to get the data uploaded quickly and take the lessons learned from the last two uploads. We’ll keep you posted as we know more about Q3 and what our plans for PH are. There’s still lots of Q2 data left to go through in the meantime.

Happy Hunting,
