Billions Of Planets In Our Galaxy ‘May Hold Life’
Billions of stars in our galaxy could have as many as three planets orbiting them that could support life.
Astronomers used data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope which has already confirmed that 1,000 planets are orbiting stars in the Milky Way – with another 3,000 possibles.
The researchers made their claim after calculating the chances of planets orbiting in the “habitable zone” – the region around a star which could contain planets capable of supporting liquid water.
Danish researcher Steffen Kjaer Jacobsen, from the University of Copenhagen, said: “According to the statistics and the indications we have, a good share of the planets in the habitable zone will be solid planets where there might be liquid water and where life could exist.”
Scientists believe there could be many more planets that remain undiscovered by Kepler.
Sure. We all have a ticket in this lottery And no one is saying we aren’t winners. But …
