715 More Planets

The Kepler Space Telescope may be dead, but the enormous mass of data it collected is only now bearing real scientific fruit: 715 new planets orbiting 305 stars. Now there are more than 1700 known planets in the galaxy. The universe truly is full of worlds, as we have been fond of imagining. If only they weren't so far away!
