Study says every star has planets

Every star twinkling in the night sky plays host to at least one planet, a new study suggests.

Well there we go, according to this study by an international team, they seem to believe that every star will have at least one planet.

They go on to say there could be around 10 billion Earth like planets.

They used an array of small telescopes to study gravitational microlensing, which is the method of gravity from a star amplifying light from one that is further away.

Something that many of us have believed for a while, that most stars, if not all have planets orbiting them.

Giant mass flying through space , is bound to pick up debris "planets" here and there

It's not so surprising espically with the expantion of the universe , and bodies colliding with one another , and of course planet formation .

F irst stars had no planets

I'm sure there are those odd ball stars out there with no planets , that just come outta the blue lol. But to say every star has a planet , is like saying there is life in glise 581g :p . We can assume , but lets not be so sure and ahead of ourselfs.

Giant masses attract smaller masses . Just fly through space your bound to pick up a planet or two ,

That implies there are some 10 billion Earth-sized planets in our galaxy.

come on SETI , we just need one to say hey bingo were here

we need super telescope lasers , solar powered to shoot random lasers in everywhich direction like pulsars as our marker beside earth , but sometimes it might hit earth and poor billy could get direct hit in the eye with this laser lol

Beat you to it by a minute mate sorry haha.

Anyway, yeah debris is bound to get caught in the stars gravitational fields, and the clump together to form planets. It is a bit much to say every star has a planet, but I'm willing to bet there's not many out there that don't have planets.
