And every time we go into a new solar system, we are like you throwing the die: you can't be absolutely sure a seven will come up, even if you've thrown it nine times already and haven't had a seven; you could get any one of the twenty numbers, any one time. Our next solar system could have a good planet, just as any of the last six or seven could have had one; but the fact that we haven't had one for seven solar systems doesn't mean we're any more likely to have one this time. We could get three good planets in a row from three systems, or we could keep on drawing blanks fifteen or twenty or eighty times in a row.
