Kepler: Early results

The Bad Astronomer has the scoop on Kepler.

I haven’t yet found too much information about the behind-the-sceen storage and processing technology but am definitely interested in it.  While it may not be a real-time CEP system like the LHC (and here), it still wouldn’t be your average large scale, high volume system. From a press release:

Over the course of the Kepler mission, NASA Ames anticipates requiring between 30 and 90 terabytes of capacity to allow storage and analysis of images captured by the telescope. The precise amount of capacity actually required depends on several variables so it cannot be determined at the outset.
