THE GOLDILOCKS ZONE
The Goldilocks Zone is basically a habitable zone around a star where the temperature is just right - not too hot and not too cold
Habitable Zone TOO HOT JUST RIGHT TOO COLD Planet size: 1-2x Earth
THE HABITABLE ZONE MARS EARTH VENUS
Venus is also found in the goldilock zone, Venus had water, which it eventually evaporated in a period of time
"There's plenty of life on Earth and there's plenty of water, but we've yet to find life on other planets even in our own solar system." Professor John Webb
scientists usually look for planets in the goldilocks zone when oerving star systems in the hope of finding a planet similar to earth and also possibly inhabited by life forms :.
Bigger hotter stars have their Goldilocks Zones further out, while smaller cooler stars such as M-type red dwarf stars have habitable zones much closer in
Red dwarfs are the most common type of star in the Milky Way galaxy.
