NASA’s Kepler suggests 17 billion Earth-sized planets in Milky Way
The Milky Way contains at least 17 billion planets the size of Earth, and likely many more, according to a study that raises the chances of discovering a sister planet to ours.

Astronomers using NASA’s Kepler spacecraft found that about 17 percent of stars in our galaxy have a planet about the size of Earth in a close orbit.

The Milky Way is known to host about 100 billion stars, meaning that about one of every six has an Earth-sized planet around it.

Re: NASA’s Kepler suggests 17 billion Earth-sized planets in Milky Way
so, if only 1% of them are in the Goldilocks zone, that is 170 million potential planets that can harbour life, and that can be explored by us?
