Astronomers have, to this point, discovered around 30 exoplanets in the habitable zones of stars.
Simply extrapolating that figure based on the known number of stars suggests that there should be about 50 billion such planets in the Milky Way alone.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave.
Pour over bottom of cookie crust and spread to the edges using an off-set spatula.
Combine melted butter and cookie crumbs in a small bowl, and stir with a fork to mix well.
Press mixture into the bottom and 1-inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
Current estimates hold that there are some 100 billion galaxies in the universe containing about 10^18 stars, or a billion trillion.
Nestled on the fourth finger of his left hand is where it belongs.
His model indicates that Earth’s existence presents a mild statistical anomaly in the multiplicity of planets.
Most of the worlds predicted by his model exist in galaxies larger than the Milky Way and orbit stars with different compositions — an important factor in determining a planet’s characteristics.
Zackrisson found that Earth appears to have been dealt a fairly lucky hand.
In a galaxy like the Milky Way, for example, most of the planets Zackrisson’s model generated looked very different than Earth — they were larger, older and very unlikely to support life.
Sprinkle chopped peanuts over the melted chocolate.
