Hi chris

I think this would be good dialogue about greenhouse effect.
I think it could also lead to possibly extending the definition of habitable zones.
There is considerable effort these days finding worlds in nearby stars which could support life.

At the moment we just finding the bigger planets- mainly due current lack of telescope resolution, but within a decade or so that could be remedied.

"Fifty new alien worlds, including 16 "super Earths," have been found—the largest extrasolar planet haul announced at one time, astronomers say.

The discoveries bring the total number of known extrasolar planets, or exoplanets, to 645.

"The harvest of discoveries ... has exceeded all expectations, and includes an exceptionally rich population of super-Earths and Neptune-type planets hosted by stars very similar to our sun," study leader Michel Mayor, an astronomer at the University of Geneva in Switzerland, said in a statement."
