First Update

After about a week of work, we have all accommodated to our individual responsibilities. Brendan tirelessly searches through papers and tries his best to find different models of habitable zones around stars, while I implement these models and make programs that will make it easier for us to get the results. Kumai, well we still don’t really know what he’s doing. He’s doing his own thing.

Brendan and I have completely modeled the Liquid defined habitable zone, and have begun to work on the Ultra-Violet and Tidal defined habitable zones. Our current program works by cross referencing the identifier of any given star with a database to find its spectral type. We then use the spectral type to find temperature and luminosity to plug into our model and we get a radius as our output. screenshot-255
