Asterank provides a queryable database containing information on over 2,000 exoplanets and unconfirmed "objects of interest" collected through NASA's Kepler Project. The Kepler spacecraft detects planets outside our solar system (a.k.a. exoplanets) by observing the decrease in light caused when a planet passes in front of a star. The Asterank Kepler Project database is updated nightly from the Kepler Data Explorer. Because Asterank's database runs on MongoDB, queries must adhere to Mongo's JSON format.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
