The Habitable Zone: Life Around Other Stars

In this project, I will be working with a group of students to create a model that is capable of calculating the habitable zone for some of the stars that are closest to us. This habitable zone is the area where the perfect temperature exists for a planet to sustain life. It is not hot enough for all the water to boil away, yet it is not cold enough for all of it to freeze. After creating a model, a target list for a future telescope biosignature survey will be made, as well as a visual that summarizes our results.
