A search of the time-series photometry from NASA's Kepler spacecraft reveals a transiting planet candidate orbiting the 11th magnitude G5 dwarf KIC 10593626 with a period of 290 days. The characteristics of the host star are well constrained by high-resolution spectroscopy combined with an asteroseismic analysis of the Kepler photometry, leading to an estimated mass and radius of 0.970 ± 0.060 M☉ and 0.979 ± 0.020 R☉. The depth of 492 ± 10 ppm for the three observed transits yields a radius of…

TLDR
The Kepler mission detected a five-planet system where all the planets are smaller than twice the size of Earth and where the two outermost planets orbit in the habitable zone of their star, defined as the region where a rocky planet can host liquid water on its solid surface.

Kepler-9: A System of Multiple Planets Transiting a Sun-Like Star, Confirmed by Timing Variations
TLDR
