TESS News and Results

Alright, as we all know, the TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) mission is in space, and they've reached their science orbit. So we may as well start a TESS news and results thread. To commission it, there's great news on the fuel consumption.

The orbit adjust burns of @NASA_TESS were 10 times more precise than expected! It was so good that the spacecraft has fuel for >20 years of stable operations (!!) #Exoplanets2
