Okay, now this is pretty awesome…notice all of the big planets in this poster? There’s a good reason for that.

And now here’s a slightly more sciencey version, which shows the distribution of planet candidates by size. Lots of things Neptune-sized or bigger, mostly because that’s what Kepler is the most sensitive to.
If you account for how sensitive Kepler is, this the fraction of stars that have Earths, super-Earths, Neptunes, and others. Pretty cool stuff.
