715 new planets have been discovered by a US space telescope.

NASA’s Kepler mission said they orbit around 305 stars, working similarly to our own solar system.

Most of the planets are smaller than Neptune, which is almost four times the size of Earth.

Previously about 1,000 planets in total had been identified in our galaxy.
