+ - "Tens of Billions" of Habitable Worlds in Milky Way->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Astronomers hunting for rocky planets with the right temperature to support life estimate there may be tens of billions of them in our galaxy alone.

A European team said on Wednesday that about 40 percent of red dwarf stars — the most common type in the Milky Way — have a so-called "super-Earth" planet orbiting in a habitable zone that would allow water to flow on the surface."
