The Milky Way may be teeming with billions of habitable planets, according to a recent survey – and that’s given the search for extra-terrestrial life a big boost.

A survey of red dwarf stars in the Milky Way found nine super-Earths – and two in the ‘habitable zone’ where liquid water could exist.

Red dwarf stars account for 80 per cent of the 200 to 400 billion stars in our galaxy – and scientists now believe that 40 per cent of those might have a planet in the habitable zone.

This is great news for the alien hunters at the California-based SETI institute – the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.

SETI Senior Astronomer Seth Shostak told Space.com: ‘SETI is looking for Mr. Right or maybe Ms. Right, depending on your point of view. It helps to find out that there’s 10 times as many candidates as there were before.’
