Good Kepler News

Firstly, the Kepler space telescope discovered a weird, compact planetary system composed of six planets, which you can read about it in here.

Secondly, and this is the best of all news, they have discovered over a thousand candidates of stars harboring planets. Over the next few years, expect the number of planets discovered to increase dramatically.
