Pointy-eared aliens traveling at light speed are staying firmly in science fiction, but scientists are offering fresh insights into the possible existence of inhabited worlds and intelligent civilizations in space.

There may be 100 billion Earth-like planets in the Milky Way, or one for every sun-type star in the galaxy, said Alan Boss, an astronomer with the Carnegie Institution and author of the new book "The Crowded Universe: The Search for Living Planets."

He made the prediction based on the number of "super-Earths" -- planets several times the mass of the Earth, but smaller than gas giants like Jupiter -- discovered so far circling stars outside the solar system.


just wanted to point this out... if nobody posted it yet.

Crap, we posted this about the same time! I just find it interesting to see MSM posting articles like this. They will poke fun at individuals who purpose this sort of thing, but still will write articles on the subject. Kinda makes me wonder if they have been asked to slowly subject the public to this topic.

I think they(MSM) finally learned that they get more ratings on their site if they report on interesting things. It seems to be working. FOX and CNN seem to be changing their standards and learning very fast that people like it and come back for more.
