Scientists have estimated the first cosmic census of planets in our galaxy and the numbers are astronomical: there are at least 50 billion planets in the Milky Way.

At least 500 million of those planets are in the not-too-hot, not-too-cold "Goldilocks Zone" where life could exist. The numbers were extrapolated from the early results of NASA's planet-hunting Kepler telescope.

That's just in our galaxy. It's estimated that there are 100 billion other galaxies.

Well, well , well...."Goldilocks Zone" ....huh? Interesting. Does that mean that she will visit sometime then run off, never to be seen again?

Thank you Rob....I would have never known.




It is the lack of Christianity that has brought us where we are. Not a lack of churches or religious forms but of the real thing in our hearts. LIW.....Words From a Fearless Heart
