From Roeland Voorrips:

Re: Distant planet judged possibly habitable (April 23): How is the habitable zone around a star established? I would expect that this depends very much on the atmosphere of the planet. The difference in surface temperature between Earth and Venus is due more to the difference in atmosphere than to the distance to the sun.
