We are told that some of the new exoplanets that have been discovered lately are within what is know as "The Goldilocks Zone" i.e they are near
enough to their host star that they may support life, much as The Earth is close enough to our own sun.
However, we are told that Mars Curiosity has found what could be evidence that Mars could have supported primitive forms of life long ago. The
question is does Mars come within the Goldilocks Zone, as it is on average a further 40 million miles from the sun than Earth is? Or in simple terms
what is the distance of the Goldilocks zone?
