Get ready to add to the list of planets.

NASA says it has discovered 715 new planets.

The Kepler Space Telescope discovered the planets, which were verified using a new technique.

This is the biggest single discovery of planets ever made.

Four of the planets are in the "habitable zone", which NASA says means they could potentially support life.

NASA expects the next batch of data will reveal even more planets.
