Hello C@Homers,

In this new thread, I will be presenting articles related to astronomy that appear in major online media outlets. I have already created a thread to report on recent discoveries related to astronomy and closely related fields. The two threads are different, however. In this new thread, I will provide links to articles that are usually written by science journalists in a way that make them more accessible to the public. In the other thread, I have been reporting on discoveries as news appear about them on the websites of the entities (space agencies, universities, etc) where they have been made---most often this is the case.

I hope this new thread contributes to making news about astronomy more accessible. Please do not hesitate to leave comments and ask questions.

Here is the first article:Odds of Finding Alien Life Boosted By Billions of Habitable Worlds.

Best wishes,

Faik
