"It seems that the universe produces plentiful real estate for life that somehow resembles life on Earth."

ERIK PETIGURA, a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley, who conducted a three-year analysis, estimating that the Milky Way contains as many as 40 billion habitable Earth-size planets. (Quote of the day from the New York Times, Nov 5, 2013.)
