Billions Of Habitable Worlds In Our Galaxy?

There could be tens of billions of planets in the Milky Way that
exist within the habitable zones of their parent red dwarf
stars.

By Irene Klotz

The Gist

* A new study examines the prevalence of planets around red
dwarf stars, the most common type of star in the galaxy.

* 40 percent of these red dwarfs could harbor planets that
maintain water in a liquid state on their surfaces.

* But there is no way of knowing from this estimation how many
of these worlds will be rocky, and therefore genuinely
habitable.
