Sorry, Kepler T-shirts are out of stock and there is no plan to restock.

Below are photos of them when they were available.

What is the Heart on this T-shirt?

The Kepler team displays the variations in brightness in a graph of brightness versus time, known as a light curve. One day, one of the Kepler scientists looked at the light curve of a star identified as KIC12253350 and thought that a section of it looked like a heart. There was some moderate debate among some of the Kepler team as to what kind of variable star KIC12253350 must be, but no conclusive categorization has been agreed on. This T-shirt was produced for the January 2011 American Astronomical Society meeting in Seattle and for Valentine's Day 2011.
