"I'm really excited to see what people will do with this catalog", Susan Mullally, a Kepler research scientist at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California, told a press conference today during the Kepler & K2 Science Conference at NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View.
Kepler has spotted more than 4,000 planet candidates and confirmed more than half of those.

The mission ran into technical problems in 2013 when mechanisms used to turn the spacecraft failed but the telescope has continued searching for potentially habitable planets as part of its K2 project.
One research group took advantage of the Kepler data to make precise measurements of thousands of planets, revealing two distinct groups of small planets.
