New Planets

This is a January, 2011 handout artist rendering provided by NASA. NASA’s Kepler telescope is finding that relatively smaller planets _ still larger than Earth, but tinier than Jupiter _ are proving more common outside our solar system than once thought. This drawing is of one of the smallest planets that Kepler has found, a rocky planet called Kepler-10b, that measures 1.4 times the size of Earth and where the temperature is more than 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit.
