TESS is a new NASA Explorer mission, currently scheduled for launch no later than June 2018, which will carry out a near all-sky photometric survey down to magnitude ~12–16. The Kepler/K2 community is encouraged to explore the opportunities enabled by the new GI Program at the TESS Science Support Center Website.

Phase-1 proposals for TESS Cycle 1 are currently due on 29 Sep 2017, while Step-1 proposals for K2 GO Cycle 6 are expected to be due on 12 Oct 2017.
