More than half of all sunlike stars in the Milky Way may have a habitable planet

Our Milky Way galaxy abounds with potentially Earth-like planets, a new study suggests.

On average, each sunlike star in the Milky Way likely harbors between 0.4 and 0.9 rocky planets in its “habitable zone,” the just-right range of orbital distances where liquid water could be stable on a world’s surface, researchers have found.

“This is the first time that all of the pieces have been put together to provide a reliable measurement of the number of potentially habitable planets in the galaxy,” study co-author Jeff Coughlin, an exoplanet researcher at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute in Mountain View, California, said in a statement.

About 7% of the Milky Way’s 200 billion or so stars are “G dwarfs” like the sun, so that’s a lot of possibly Earth-like real estate. That 7% is 17 Billion planets potential planets.

“This is the first time that all of the pieces have been put together to provide a reliable measurement of the number of potentially habitable planets in the galaxy,” study co-author Jeff Coughlin, an exoplanet researcher at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute in Mountain View, California, said in a statement.

There’s a 95% Chance of an Earth-Like Planet Within 20 Light-Years

The latest prototype of Elon Musk’s planned Mars rocket has been coming together at the SpaceX development facility in Boca Chica, Texas. SN8 looks more like an actual rocket than previous iterations, and it could be the first to make an actual high altitude flight, though Musk has been quick to lower expectations.

Previous versions have managed a few short “hops” of nearly 500 feet (150 meters) in altitude before making controlled landings not far from where they lifted off. Now Musk hopes to fly SN8 to over 9 miles (15 kilometers) high, but he also isn’t guaranteeing it’ll make it far off the launchpad.

“A RUD (rapid unscheduled disassembly, AKA an explosion) right off launchpad is also possible. Fortunately, SN9 is almost ready,” Musk said in a tweet Saturday.

But again, Musk is by no means confident SN8 will stick its first landing attempt.

“If it fails right at the end, some landing pad repair will be needed to fill in the crater,” the SpaceX founder tweeted.

Musk has said minor alterations will be made to each new prototype up through at least SN20.

Road closure schedule through Friday November 6th.

Your Guide to Uranus

Facts worth sharing
•Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun, is a cyan-colored world tipped on its side boasting rings and 27 known moons.
•Uranus-sized worlds are common around other stars, so studying the planet helps us understand other solar systems and whether or not ours is unique.
•We aren’t sure where Uranus formed or where it got its water. Figuring this out would give us insight into our solar system’s early days, when life was getting started on Earth.

How do we study Uranus?

Like Neptune, only spacecraft has ever visited Uranus. Missions to the outer planets require long travel times, which typically means higher costs. The only spacecraft ever to visit Uranus was Voyager 2, which launched in 1977 and used a rare planetary alignment that only happens every 175 years to visit all 4 outer planets.

When Voyager 2 swung by Uranus in 1986, it discovered new moons and rings and measured the planet’s magnetic field. Because the moons’ orbits sat sideways compared to Voyager 2’s trajectory, the spacecraft only got a close look at Miranda, revealing a world scarred by grooves and divots and boasting what could be the tallest cliff in the solar system.
