[quote:Anonymous Coward 31065789:MV8yMTA4NzMzXzM1NTQ3MDA5XzQ1QkNCQURE] Can you imagine if .0001% of those planets have life on them and out of those let's say another another .0001% have intelligent life on them that still leaves us with 170 intelligent civilization spanning an 100.000 light year radius ! No wonder SETI has not found anything yet, probably there are a lot of civilizations in our Milky Way but they're spread too far away from each other for us to come into contact with any of them...so far !

17 billion planets in our Galaxy .... and I thought we had only 8 LOL
I had to learn the 8 planets when I was in elementary school ... I hope the kids have to learn the 17 billion planets now :)
Enough planets exist in the Milky Way to ensure that there is at least one for each of the hundred million stars in the galaxy, NASA has revealed.
Analysis of data from the Kepler space telescope shows that 17 billion planets in the galaxy are Earth-like in size.
The findings are making scientists increasingly confident of finding a rocky planet the same size as Earth, with a similar orbit and situated in the 'habitable zone' of a solar system.
