That's the problem with a liar, you can never be quite sure of anything they say again.

Ps...Of all these earthlike planets...how many are situated in the goldilocks zone?...because, that's actually what we are interested in


Exactly what do you think "earthlike planets" means?

True.
i suppose its possible for all of the planets to be out of the zone, but statistically, there should be one or two that can be in there. would be awesome if this were the case.
Then we have struck gold.


Goldielocks got eaten and is now strewn all over the woods.

Peace

none of them are in the HZ of stars like our sun ( G type). This is where the use of the term "earth-like" has caused alot of confusion. It sounds like you think all of them are? sorry that is not the case.

If theyve found small planets around M stars which are smaller & cooler then we could have a few in the HZ of these stars. But conditions are very diffirent there. The planet will be tidally locked so no day/night cycle like here on earth. Also theyre so close that the star will exert huge tidal forces on the planet. M stars are also very active sending out massive solar flares which could kill any life on the planets.

Theyve not told us what type of stars these candidate planets have been detected around. But none will be in the HZ of stars like our sun. Not enough data has been collected to detect those.
