I would not be surprised if there were many more than the 6 billion quoted. Also since we live in a G-type star environment the G stars are all they are considering as having an earth like environment which is OK at this stage but I believe any star unless it has a habit of doing big CMEs and or mini super novas on a regular basis could have planets we would be very comfortable upon.



To be considered Earth-like, a planet must be rocky, roughly Earth-sized and orbiting Sun-like (G-type) stars. It also has to orbit in the habitable zones of its star—the range of distances from a star in which a rocky planet could host liquid water, and potentially life, on its surface.

ALL THESE WORLDS ARE YOURS – EXCEPT EUROPA.

ATTEMPT NO LANDINGS THERE.


That's pretty close to 1 earth like planet per human earth inhabitant. Time for a new Homestead Act? Where do I sign up?

There must be some kind of higher domain out there keeping track of all those habitable planets that harbor intelligent lifeforms?

One of these days...mankind is finally going to accept the notion that Earth is just a single atom in a collection of atoms which make up a molecule, in a collection of molecules which make up a single cell, in a collection of billions of cells which make up an organism, in a collection of billions of organisms which make up a universe, in a collection of billions universes which make up a multiverse, in a collection of billions of multiverses which make up a...who knows, but it goes on for infinity.

I want to see all of them. I want to walk on the surface and see what's there, or not there. Habitable or not, I want to see everything!

You remember this ad from the 90s?

Guinness infinity advert 1994 - Louis Armstrong - 'We have all the time in the world'


To infinity, and beyond!

I hadn't actually, but that pretty well sums it up though!

Ever heard of the artist M.C. Escher?

It's kind of like that too.
