if u have two stars, the hospitable zone will still occur (hopefully), just further out, and it will end, just further out.
it might end up being less probable for life because as weve seen, we're one in *a lot* so far, and everything for us is pretty smooth. having two
stars wud easily create gravitational dips, irregular orbits, greater winds/flares/storms/UV/etc. again, this wud seem to be solved by having a
planet further out, but not perfectly.
in a huge, harsh universe such as the one weve got, every little bit counts. a little more difficulty cud throw the whole thing.
