The international team estimates that there are ten of billions of these possibly habitable rocky planets in the Milky Way galaxy, our home galaxy.
And, they also state that about 100 of these Earth-like planets are within 30 light-years of Earth (which corresponds to them being about 180 trillion miles away from us).
Yes, trillions of miles away if a far distance away, but still relatively neighborly when compared to the size of the Milky Way galaxy.
This study is considered the first estimate of the number of these super-Earths around red dwarf stars in the Milky Way galaxy.
They used the 3.6-meter telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile to gather their data.
