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.
