100 billion habitable exoplanets?
That's what I'm talking about!

Astronomers at the University of Auckland claim that there are actually around 100 billion habitable, Earth-like planets in the Milky Way. There are roughly 500 billion galaxies in the universe, meaning there is somewhere in the region of 50,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 habitable planets. I’ll leave you to do the math on whether one of those 50 sextillion planets has the right conditions for nurturing life or not.
