My statement grieving the loss of Ph.D. student José Flores Velázquez. He was brilliant and kind. He made us better. Astronomy will miss you José will miss you. I will miss you too.

Me too! 'Physical Geography' bachelors to biogeochemistry PhD to somehow astrophysics postdoc. Help! I only know a very little about how little I know about any one of those topics, and even then I can be sure there's a whole area that I don't even know I don't know about...

Therefore, I think simply ID'ing those planets as 'in the HZ' would be accurate (by our def of HZ) without being speculative about their surface properties. In terms of design it's great, I can't fault you there!

It is fair to assume HZ planets are more likely habitable. But, there are caveats. Better to think of the HZ as an observable property of a star that is set by its mass, luminosity: the distance that a planet (with Earth's atmos) would be able to support surface liquid H2O.

Thanks for the kind words. Love this poster! 😍 Would be great to see a more hi-res version if you had a link? What was your criteria for potential conditions for life?

You sounded great, very clear and concise. But I jangled my jangly badge around a lot during your intro, sorry! 🙊

Final favorite planet count: 2 Earth 1 Archean Earth 1 Mars 1 TRAPPIST-1e 1 TRAPPIST-1 system 🙄 Astrobiologists need to learn about more exoplanets!
