How to use the James Webb Space Telescope to hunt for life around white dwarfs

White dwarfs, the remnant cores of sun-like stars, are incredibly common in the universe. Many of them host planets that may be in the habitable zones of these stars and may even harbor life. Now scientists have explained how to hunt this possible life.

Most estimates place the total number of planets in the Milky Way somewhere between a few hundred billion and a trillion. That’s right – a trillion. However, astronomers could only confirm the existence of a few thousand, since finding planets in general is quite difficult.
