Kepler Mission. A NASA search for habitable planets.
Mark Collins has a Group about the Kepler Mission. Here is a copy of his Home Page message, where you can join his Group:
"There is a NASA mission called the Kepler Mission which will detect Earth-sized exoplanets. This club is for those interested
in finding out whether the Universe is full of Earth-Like planets or whether the Earth is rare and we may possibly be living
on the only inhabited planet in our galaxy."

The California & Carnegie Planet Search: What we measure at the telescope is a change in the wavelength in light coming from
a star over the course of days, months, and years. This changing wavelength is the Doppler shift of the light, resulting from
the star orbiting a common center of mass with a companion planet. As an example, Jupiter's orbit causes a slight wobble in
our Sun, introducing velocity changes of about 12 meters per second.
