Exoplanet Bonanza Boosts Count by 1,200

This was on yahoo news...

NASA's Kepler telescope has found more than 1,200 extrasolar planet candidates.
Smaller worlds, like Earth, appear to be more common than gas giants, like Jupiter.
One six-planet system is unique in that the planets orbit very close to their sun.

Here is the news story link
