60 Billion Alien Planets Could Support Life, Study Suggests

Though only about dozen potentially habitable exoplanets have been detected so far, scientists say the universe should be teeming with alien worlds that could support life. The Milky Way alone may host 60 billion such planets around faint red dwarf stars, a new estimate suggests.

Based on data from NASA's planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft, scientists have predicted that there should be one Earth-size planet in the habitable zone of each red dwarf, the most common type of star. But a group of researchers has now doubled that estimate after considering how cloud cover might help an alien planet support life.

Surely that answers the question of "why haven't they made Contact with us yet?"; if there's (potentially) so many of them, why should they consider us noteworthy enough to say Howdy to?

The plants on Earth and many of the animals, I am sure would not be too sad to see the back of us, but if other planets are teeming with life such as plants, I doubt they would be building spaceships or even thinking about trying to make contact with any thing else out there.

I wish we could somehow tell them out there, it would be safer not to try and make contact with us, all they have to do is see what we are doing to our own planet for the reason why....maybe they have already seen it. :alien:

What I've often thought is, They might not consider us of any particular interest, if the Universe is indeed teeming with Civilisations, but the planet might be a very interesting subject to study on account of the complexity of the ecosystems and the variety of habitat. And that might well account for a lot of UFO sightings, but also for why they haven't, so far as we know, said Howdy.

They obviously have not tuned into UM yet then.

Somehow I feel if plants from other worlds even did somehow make contact with us, they would find some mental connection with some of our world leaders. :whistle:
