“Our Milky Way Galaxy is just one among billions of galaxies in the universe. In every way an ordinary galaxy. It’s 100,000 light years across. There are hundreds of billions of stars here. Lost inside this huge swarm is one average-sized star. As stars go, it’s quite unremarkable. Nevertheless, it’s the most special place in all the cosmos. Orbiting this star is the only place we know in all the universe to harbor life.”
Of course, that place is Earth, and while we can’t say for certain, it is truly unlikely to be the only place in this vast universe or even this galaxy to contain life. We might one day have to rethink exactly what that term means one day. But for now, Earth is the only place we know that supports life.
