Kepler Spacecraft in Emergency Mode
During a scheduled contact on Thursday, April 7, mission operations engineers discovered that the Kepler spacecraft was in Emergency Mode (EM). EM is the lowest operational mode and is fuel intensive. Recovering from EM is the team's priority at this time.

Initial indications are that Kepler entered EM approximately 36 hours ago, before mission operations began the maneuver to orient the spacecraft to point toward the center of the Milky Way for the K2 mission's microlensing observing campaign.

The spacecraft is nearly 75 million miles from Earth, making the communication slow. Even at the speed of light, it takes 13 minutes for a signal to travel to the spacecraft and back.

Re: Kepler Spacecraft in Emergency Mode
Only info that came to me was nov 16 and approaching at 93,260 mph. So that puts Sun distance at what 1000 hours out. Don't think we'll see anything until its a week or 2 away unless we have deep space telescopes looking in the right direction.

It broke down, they had to tow it all the way back to Pegasus to fit a new clutch.
