NASA's newest planet-hunting spacecraft is poised for a Monday evening launch.

NASA calls the spacecraft TESS, which is short for Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite.

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, or TESS, is scheduled for liftoff at 6:32 p.m. with a 30-second launch window.

The satellite known as Tess will survey nearly the entire sky, staring at the brightest, closest stars in an effort to find any planets that might be encircling them.

2 April space, the company performed a successful launch of the Falcon 9 rocket with the spacecraft Dragon, who managed to deliver to the ISS the 2.6 MT of cargo.

"Humans have wondered forever whether we were alone in the universe, and until 25 years ago the only planets we knew about were the eight in our own solar system", he told reporters on the eve of the TESS launch. The spacecraft is expected to identify thousands of planets orbiting nearby stars.

De Blasis eventually added a second goal for the hosts late in the game following a mistake by Freiburg keeper Alexander Schwolow. Daniel Brosinski tried his luck before half-time and his shot took a deflection off Freiburg defender Marc Oliver Kempf's hand.

NASA's TESS mission hopes to find exoplanets beyond our solar system. The aging spacecraft is now low on fuel and near the end of its life.

Even in terms of sky-area coverage, TESS goes way beyond Kepler. They measure tiny dips in a star's brightness that could indicate a planetary body passing in front of the camera's line of sight.

Two hours before Monday evening's scheduled launch, SpaceX announced it needed more time to check its rocket, which will carry the satellite to orbit.

As the love story in Bharat is very mature and quite subtle, we needed an actor who could portray this in the best possible way. She now is wrapping up third season of Quantico in Ireland and trailer of her Hollywood film A Kid Like Jake has just released.

"TESS forms a bridge from what we have learned about exoplanets to date and where we are headed in the future", said Jeff Volosin, TESS project manager at NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center.

That said, it is worth noting TESS won't find life on any of these worlds.
