It is a scientific discovery which could decide the future of the next centuries of Humanity. New analysis of data from NASA’s Kepler spacecraft shows there could be up to 300 million potentially habitable exoplanets across the Milky Way.
As reported by New York Times, which publishes the results of this study, Nasa asked three characteristics for them to be considered “habitable”. These exoplanets need to be rocky, orbit around a star like the Sun, and there must be liquid water on its surface.
“We want to be very careful in case nature has surprises regarding livability and therefore intentionally reduce the estimates “said one of the researchers of this study, according to whom this figure could be higher.
Some of these exoplanets would even be located at only 20 light years from Earth and 30 light years from the Sun. This new result also means that the galaxy is at least twice as fertile as that estimated in one of the first analyzes of the data from the Kepler spaceship, in 2013.
