moment tantalizingly closer.

From a pure numbers point of view, more stars mean more planets,
which in turn mean more chances for life. To wit: Late last
year, researchers reported there are three times as many stars
in the universe as previously reckoned. These easily overlooked
stars are dim, low-mass red dwarfs much smaller than our sun.
While not ideal for the development of life, these slow-burning
stars could have served as hosts for habitable planets for
nearly as long as the 13.7-billion-year-old universe has existed
- oodles of time for extraterrestrial creatures to take hold.
