  • Comment - I don't understand why K-9d is in front of the other two Keplers. GamerPro64 (talk) 21:05, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
Kepler-9d is the closest of the planets to Kepler-9. It's listed as 'd' because it was discovered only after 9b and 9c were. Nstock (talk) 19:48, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Support! It's so cool seeing a topic outside of our solar system. Would this be the first? --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 21:24, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
They are listed just below yours at Wikipedia:Good_topics#Physics_and_astronomy. Nergaal (talk) 23:29, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Comment - I just noticed that Kepler Mission is part of the book. Does that mean that it has to be part of the topic? GamerPro64 (talk) 23:07, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
    • No! The Kepler mission has reported over a dozen confirmed planets so far and it has over 1200 candidates awaiting confirmation. In theory at least, this topic would be a sub-sub-topic on the mission one. Nergaal (talk) 01:24, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
      • Nah it doesn't need to be part of the topic. It's an appendix to the book mostly. Although the Kepler mission could use some cleanup. There are some deadlinks, and other issues (see book report). Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 17:58, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Support The topic is not the Kepler mission, it is a particular star system, and therefore complete. Courcelles 08:24, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Question: What are the chances that an additional planet will be discovered in the system? JKBrooks85 (talk) 07:39, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Further discoveries in an already-reported system are not too common. Nergaal (talk) 01:32, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Question Why is Kepler (spacecraft) in the book but not the topic? Adabow (talk · contribs) 23:27, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
    • My apologies for the delay. Kepler-9 is a single system that has been observed by the Kepler satellite; as the topic is about the Kepler-9 system and not the satellite, the topic is complete. It is in the book because, as Headbomb said, it serves as more of an appendix. --Starstriker7(Talk) 03:27, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
