16th Dec 2019: File server crash

Shortly before lunch-time today we had a major crash of our primary file-server, which holds all the Kepler/K2/KASC data. No data has been lost, but it does mean that it is currently not possible to download data from the KASOC Data Search, Bundles, or Publications.
We will keep the KASOC website running, and other features like Star Catalog should not be affected.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and hope to have the systems back online as soon as possible.
UPDATE (20/12): Everything is now back to normal, and all data is available again.

20th Aug 2019: TASC5/KASC12 materials available

All the material from this summers TASC5/KASC12 conference in Boston have now been made available:
http://kasoc.phys.au.dk/info_conference_kasc12.php

12th Aug 2019: Data download temporaily put on hold

Due to malicious activity on our networks, the download of data from KASOC is currently been disabled. We are working hard on restoring the functionality and apologize for any inconvenience!
UPDATE (13/8): Everything is now back to normal, and data download is working.
