Kepler Planet-Detection Mission: Introduction and First Results
Detecting Distant Planets More than 400 planets have been detected outside the solar system, most of which have masses similar to that of the gas giant planet, Jupiter. Borucki et al. (p. 977,Expand

Architecture and Dynamics of Kepler's Candidate Multiple Transiting Planet Systems
About one-third of the ~1200 transiting planet candidates detected in the first four months of Kepler data are members of multiple candidate systems. There are 115 target stars with two candidateExpand

A closely packed system of low-mass, low-density planets transiting Kepler-11
When an extrasolar planet passes in front of (transits) its star, its radius can be measured from the decrease in starlight and its orbital period from the time between transits. Multiple planetsExpand

Planet Occurrence within 0.25 AU of Solar-Type Stars from Kepler
We report the distribution of planets as a function of planet radius, orbital period, and stellar effective temperature for orbital periods less than 50 days around solar-type (GK) stars. TheseExpand

Initial Characteristics of Kepler Long Cadence Data for Detecting Transiting Planets
The Kepler Mission seeks to detect Earth-size planets transiting solar-like stars in its ~115?deg2 field of view over the course of its 3.5 year primary mission by monitoring the brightness of eachExpand

Kepler-16: A Transiting Circumbinary Planet
An exoplanet has been observed, comparable in size and mass to Saturn, that orbits a pair of stars. We report the detection of a planet whose orbit surrounds a pair of low-mass stars. Data from theExpand
