‘Bil­lions upon bil­lions of stars.’ As­tronomers cal­cu­lated from data ob­tained through the Ke­pler space tele­scope that there are 8.8 bil­lion stars in our Milky Way galaxy alone with Earth-size plan­ets in the ‘Goldilocks zone’ where it’s just right for life-sus­tain­ing con­di­tions. Pic­tured is an artist’s ren­di­tion of the ‘Earth-like’ Ke­pler69c in the Cygnus star sys­tem, 2,700 light-years from us.
