Odds of Finding Alien Life Increases Exponentially- Video

Billions of Earth-like alien planets likely reside in our Milky Way galaxy, which is basically our own neighborhood and the nearest such world may be just a stone's throw away (approximately 13 light years)in the cosmic scheme of things, a new study reports. The odds of finding alien life has increased exponentially.

The Kepler Space Telescope shows that about 6% of red dwarf stars have rocky planets in their habitable zone. There are about 75 billion red dwarf stars in our Milky Way Galaxy. So that equates to 4.5 billion Earth-like planets.
