And, the chances of one of these super Earths being in the habitable zone is 41%. As it happen, larger planets similar to our Saturn and Jupiter are much less common around red dwarfs, with only about 12% of red dwarfs having these types of gaseous planets in their systems. Remarkably, the team also calculated that their are some 100 super Earth type planets in the habitable zones of stars less than 30 light years from our own. If you want to do the math, this all means that there are tens of billions of such Earth-like planets throughout our galaxy.
