Another batch of planets in Kepler-20 system. This time they are very close to earth size. Not in habitable zone though.
at this ocasion I wanna point out one thing - right now Kepler has been out there for just ~33 months. That's why right now we have confirmed just planets very close to their stars, because those transit their stars very often and we have clear, consistent readings. If Earth twin - in terms of distance from it's sun was there it would transit only twice so far, and given that readings tend to be very noisy, is just not enough for solid finding. We just have to wait a little longer.
