Seeing this gives me hope that we haven’t stopped dreaming as I mentioned one post ago. It’s still relevant, we need to keep dreaming, and seeing articles like this helps a lot.
Astronomers hunting for rocky planets with the right temperature to support life estimate there may be tens of billions of them in our galaxy alone.
A European team said on Wednesday that about 40% of red dwarf stars — the most common type in the Milky Way — have a so-called “super-Earth” planet orbiting in a habitable zone that would allow water to flow on the surface.
Since there are around 160 billion red dwarfs in the Milky Way, the number of worlds that are potentially warm enough and wet enough to support life is enormous.
