In the milky Way assumed the existence of billions of earth-like planets

В Млечном Пути предположили наличие миллиардов планет земного типа

The planet can be each fourth Sun-like star

Every fourth star in the galaxy may be a planet. Their total number may reach 10 billion.

A team of astronomers from the University of Pennsylvania suggested that in the milky Way galaxy may be located up to 10 billion Earth-like planets. This writes the Business Insider.

This is the conclusion reached by scientists after analysis of data from the Kepler telescope collected to estimate the number of earth-like planets in the milky Way.

Their results suggest that a planet similar to Earth, it revolves around four stars like the Sun. In General, this means that in our galaxy can be up to 10 billion Earth-like worlds.

Assessment is an important step in the search for alien life, as any potential life on other planets likely to be found on a planet like the Earth is warm enough to hold liquid water.

Earlier it was reported that scientists have discovered the first potentially habitable planet. It is located at a distance of 31 light years from Earth.
