Kepler is the first NASA mission able to discover planets the size of Earth—and smaller—that are orbiting other stars. Kepler has discovered 11 solar systems and 26 planets, ranging from the size of Earth to larger than Jupiter. By searching for planets that lie within a star's habitable zone—in which a planet could maintain liquid water—the mission may locate terrestrial planets capable of supporting life.

Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Education at the American Museum of Natural History. Find out more about Science Bulletins at http://www.amnh.org/sciencebulletins/.
