Why was the Kepler space telescope focused on a single patch of sky for many years?



It was studying planets around a particular star in that patch of sky.



It was trying to detect planets that repeatedly pass in front of their star.



It was trying to detect which stars in that patch of sky move due to an unseen planet.



One of its steering mechanism was broken, preventing it from pointing in other directions.
