Big News For Real Estate

Wow, this is an incredible number. It's up there in government spending territory, and that's as high as you can get.

A scientist from the Carnegie Institution of Science, Dr. Alan Boss, says there could be 100 billion Earth-like planets in our galaxy!

Even though our telescopes have only detected 300 planets besides the ones we already knew about, Dr. Boss estimates that each Sun-like star has an Earth-like planet. I suppose that's on the average, but who knows.

A reasonable conclusion to draw from that would be that there must be life of some sort on at least one of those planets, even if it's a single mosquito.

The good news for us is ... if we can get up there, that's an awful lot of land. Free land for everybody!
