The goldilocks zone is specifically about liquid WATER. The only implication is that its "just right" for....liquid W A T E R.

More precisely, it is the range of orbits around a star within which a planetary surface can support liquid water given sufficient atmospheric pressure.

Says nothing about life. ONLY LIQUID WATER.

One more time for clarity: LIQUID WATER.

A2D

PS: liquid water......

I don't think there's a Goldilocks zone, that's a Earth centrist view.

In that case, I don't think the internal combustion engine exists.



The internal combustion engine is a technology that is a real physical object that exists.

The "Goldilocks Zone" is a concept conveying "It's in the middle so it's Just Right", with the implication that it's "Just Right" for us humans.

That doesn't mean it's just right for random hypothetical alien species.

We don't know anything about aliens, it's all speculative.

False Equivalence



Ummm...I agree...humans like to anthropomorphize when it comes to alien life...
It's hard to attempt to imagine from an alien perspective because all of experience is egocentric in the sense that we simply have no other referential experience to assimilate...

Beyond that...I once tried to write in the first person from what I imagined an alien thought process might entail...It's virtually impossible because frames of reference and definition are all characteristically human...un surprisingly...I didn't want to attempt to illustrate thought by merely making up bad linguistics...

Of course I failed miserably...


Thanks man...you reminded me of that...

Grasses are some of the worst weeds I know about. Utterly useless, unless for grazing livestock. But such critters exhale CO2. Gross!

How much temperature does each point on Earth vary between the day and night. Deserts can be 100C+ during the day and drop down to -5C at night. Oceans remain constant due to the huge latent heat storage capability of water.

Earth was several degrees hotter in the past with numerous life forms existing.
Sure humans could die if exposed to high temperatures for extended time, but you do realize daily temperature fluctuations are more then the range you stated.

Even before the modern era humans have inhabited every climate on earth except for Antarctica.

Yeah. Before the modern era. How many people were there back then? Were there coastal cities with populations in the millions? Were there vast tracts of agricultural fields which depended upon seasonal rainfall to feed millions?

A fine pickle we've gotten ourselves into. Cities and stuff.

Yeah. But we're talking about a change in the average temperature of the planet. Not peak highs and lows, but energy retained in a system. So it's sort of different. More CO2 means that those deserts won't cool down quite so much at night, that they will get hotter during the day.There are many systems in the human body. Put one out of whack and a lot of stuff can go wrong. Feedback and stuff.

Both are real concepts. Just because we didn't manufacture the area around a star where liquid water can physically exist does not mean such an area does not exist. The Goldilocks Zone is as real as the Troposphere.


That doesn't mean it's just right for random hypothetical alien species.

We don't know anything about aliens, it's all speculative.

No, it means the habitat fits one condition of several. Water still must exist. A sufficient atmosphere must exist. A magnetosphere must exist. The habitat must be stable... and that's just to name a few other conditions.

You are the only one in this conversation talking about alien life. I am talking about the definition of the Goldilocks Zone... no one is saying alien life must exist in such a zone. Venus is in the same Goldilocks Zone as we are, and yet I don't think anyone seriously thinks life exists there... it's a literal Hell.

That's what they want you to think. But it does have a lot of CO2.


It should be noted, as well, that Enceladus is far, far from the Three Bears. It don't take a star to keep things warm.

Agreed. There are other situations that can produce sufficient heat. Did I indicate otherwise?

ETA: the thermodynamic equilibrium on Venus is quite different from the Earth. That's comparing apples to toasters.

Do you assert that NASA is lying then? Do you disagree that Venus is unlikely to be a planet with evidence of life which we can verify?
