Larger habitable zone suggests 60 billion planets could sustain water and life in the Milky Way Galaxy alone

Larger habitable zone suggests 60 billion planets could sustain water and life in the Milky Way Galaxy alone | STEM Education | Scoop.it

 A new study that calculates the influence of cloud behavior on climate doubles the number of potentially habitable planets orbiting red dwarfs, the most common type of stars in the universe. This finding means that in the Milky Way galaxy alone, 60 billion planets may be orbiting red dwarf stars in the habitable zone.

Researchers at the University of Chicago and Northwestern University based their study, which appears in Astrophysical Journal Letters, on rigorous computer simulations of cloud behavior on alien planets. This cloud behavior dramatically expanded the estimated habitable zone of red dwarfs, which are much smaller and fainter than stars like the sun.

Current data from NASA’s Kepler Mission, a space observatory searching for Earth-like planets orbiting other stars, suggest there is approximately one Earth-size planet in the habitable zone of each red dwarf. The UChicago-Northwestern study roughly doubles that estimate to two habitable planets for each red dwarf. It also suggests new ways for astronomers to test whether planets orbiting red dwarfs have cloud cover.
