"Oops" ~Creationists We tried to tell them, but they just didn't listen. I probably should have pointed out that the Kepler telescope uses the transit method to find planets, which means it can't see the planet until it is "eclipsing" its star. In order for that to happen, it has to be at the perfect angle between us and its star. This means that Kepler is only capable of seeing a TINY fraction of the planets that are near us. That, too, greatly adds to the numbers of planets we can safely assume are out there. Ouch, Creationists...ouch.
Kepler science chief William Borucki at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington D.C. estimates that there are at least 50 billion planets in our galaxy with around 500 million residing in habitable zones. The data was extrapolated from Kepler's findings. I also drew a similar conclusion from the data, thus considered my video cautious and conservative. That's why I comfortably posted the video without fear of it turning into an exaggerated arsenic lifeform story, or a "missing link" story. (thank you, bdwilson1000, for bringing Borucki's quotes to my attention) Music: "Ghost in the Circuit" by Velvet Acid Christ Another good video on this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlEDoO...
