Number of "homeless" planets So I stumbled upon this article and wanted to get others opinions of it. The short and long of it is it is claiming that there are roughly 100,000 X as many planets wandering about our galaxy (not attached to a star) as there are stars in our galaxy. Seems a little high to me. Further can anyone make an estimation on how much mass this would be (percentage wise) of our galaxy? The article has some information that would be helpful. http://www.voanews.com/english/news...Be-Awash-with-Homeless-Planets-140350363.html p.s. I was exagerating when I said a little.
