Back in June of last year, astronomers working with the Kepler space telescope made the bold proclamation that all stars have planets. While this is all fine-and-well (if not intuitively obvious), what was not known is how many Earth-sized planets are out there.

According to research just presented at the 221st meeting of the American Astronomical Society in California, the Milky Way hosts no less than 17 billion planets roughly the size of earth.
