40 Billion & Counting - In just our Galaxy

BRT has often talked about the possibility of life existing on other planets, (They're Everywhere) something this author thinks, is a done deal given just how vast the multiverse truly is. Seems that Kepler has upped the ante for this part of reality as per the NY Times piece titled. 

Needless to say, the odds that BRT may be right, thanks to Kepler, warms the cockles of my heart. :)

Click on the graphic below to access the terrific interactive NY Times graphic to see the different kinds of planetary systems Kepler has discovered to date. Simply unbelievable yet it's just the tip of the iceberg in man's search for extraterrestrial life especially in lieu of the fact there are approximately 200 billion galaxies in our part of the multiverse, which means... the number of earth sized planets in our neck of th woods goes beyond calculation.
