Extrasolar Planets Abound

A new spate of extrasolar planets have been discovered bringing the running total to 100. More significantly, astronomers are finding planetary systems more and more like our own. One hundred planets may not sound like a lot, but these are planets mostly (if not entirely) within our own galaxy. There are hundreds of billions of galaxies in the known universe, which means that there are literally trillions of planets out there somewhere. I won't live long enough to see evidence of life on planets outside our little neighborhood, but it will be an amazing day when it happens.
