NASA’s Kepler space telescope recently discovered there are more planets orbiting distant stars than we originally thought.

715 additional planets have been discovered among 305 planetary systems. They’re all not too big, not too small with one smaller than Neptune and four about twice the size of Earth.

Look for the new findings to be published in March in two scientific papers in the Astrophysical Journal.
