    Default exoplanet habitability mission?



    Don't, for heaven's sake, be afraid of talking nonsense! But you must pay attention to your nonsense.
    --L. Wittgenstein

    So when Nature tells you that your nonsense is wrong, try a nonsense that isn't contradicted.

    I have come across mention of 'Astro Bites' and applaud their efforts.

    For me, this is the key part of the article:

    The authors make it clear that the statistical approach is not the single best way to study habitability. For instance, this method still requires detailed analysis of a few planets to identify key diagnostics for habitability, and it is limited to planets around M-dwarf stars, whose habitable zones are the easiest to observe. However, comparative planetology still looks like a very pragmatic way to circumvent the unknowns and progress towards answering The Big Question
    The worlds detected around M-Dwarfs are nowhere near earth-like habitable. Factor in massive solar flares, tidal locking, and what not...the processes affecting these worlds may be substantially different than those for worlds around K or G dwarfs. To use them risks have a skewed base for their model. Something to keep in mind.
