I pretty sure that you know what earth is the planet third in order from the sun. The earth has several different names like apple, big blue marble. Cosmos, creation, creation, macrocosm, orb, planet, sphere, star, sublunary world, terra, firma, terrene, terrestrial sphere, universe and one very special one called Goldilocks planet. This planet according to “Paul Butler” says earth goldilocks planet not too hot or too cold. Earth is the name of the goldilocks planet Paul just wanted to be technical. 20 one light years from the earth.
(To be continued)

1. Explain what a "goldilocks planet" is.
Is likely a rocky place with an atmosphere, temperate regions, and crucially, liquid water,
2. What is the name of the planet?
Earth
3. How far from Earth is this planet?
Located some 20 light-years from Earth

4. Why was is considered inhabitable at first when discovered (tell me what year it was discovered)?

5. Are there any other planets scientists think may be inhabitable?

6. Would you live on or visit this planet? Why or Why not?
I would not like to visit any planet cause I have a lot of fears and getting even into a space shuttle is scary so I pass.

7. What do you Aliens, think about alien life forms?
If they exist, are most likely to live along the line between shadow and light, a temperate region known as the terminator, I think it very weird.

A goldilocks planet means that the temperature is moderate. Not to hot but also not to cold. The name of the planet is Gliese 581g. Gliese 581g is located approximately 20 light-years from our planet (earth). This planet was first announced in 2001.

It was first thought to be inhabitable because they thought there wsa aliens. There has been 11 years of observation on this planet so that we could be sure it was habitable. Scientists do believe that there are other habitable planets. I would live on the planet if earth was about to explode or implode or armaggedon was upon us. I do NOT like the idea of living with aliens. They probably look freaky.

A goldilock planet is one that is not too hot and not too cold. Additionally, it falls within a stars habitable zone. The name of the newly discovered goldilock planet is the Gliese 581g. Experts say, this planet is habitable, because it is the right size and distance in the orbit to have water on its surface. It is located 20 light years from Earth, and in the largest known planetary system outside of our solar system. Further, it is permanently locked to its star which makes one side of the planet in daylight and the other side in night. Initially, it was thought not to be habitable because of its orbiting too close to its star making the planet too hot for life. It was discovered in 2007.

There are planets in our solar system that are inhabitable. So it would seem logical in following this reality that in the Gliese 581g system there would be inhabitable planets. Personally, I would like to visit this newly discovered planet. I would like to view more closely its shape and its surface. Finally, my thought about alien life forms is that they don't exist. Because as a human, we require both water and oxygen and I am not convienced that there is oxygen on this planet then I must conclude that aliens don't exist.

A goldilocks planet is a planet that is not too hot or too cold.The planet, named Gliese 581g, is said to be the right size and right distance from the star it's orbiting to have liquid water on it's surafce.This planet is 20 light years from Earth. This planet was discovered in 2001, and this information was based on 11 years of observations.Yes, there are Gliese 581c and d.they were at first considered habitable but then were changed to inhabitable.
If i could actually see someone go to that planet and be able to breathe NORMALLY and be able to survive, then i would change my mind. But then, you still have to worry about food. I mean where would it come from. And oxygen, how would we get that. The human body requires many certain things to survive. God created Earth to perfectly suit our needs. And with Earth's LARGE population (more than 6 BILLION), i'm not perfectly convinced that and it can suit everyone.And the aliens, i personally believe they don't exist. I believe the only life forms that exist are the one's on Earth.

The planet, Gliese 581g, is the planet thought to be suitable for life. It is a Goldilocks planet meaning it isn't too hot or cold. It is located twenty million light years away. It is "just the right size and just at the right distance [from its star] to have liquid water on the surface." Scientists do believe there are other inhabitable planets out there. I wouldn't like to live on this planet first. I would wait for others to go, but there is a problem because experimenting with humans with illegal. I believe that it is possible to have life on other planets, but I do not believe that God would place human life there. I could see plant life or animal life, but not human life. Have a blessed day!!

A goldilocks planet gets it's name from the story of Goldilocks and the three bears when she finds the perfect bowl of porridge. In the science world, this refers to a planet that is not too hot and not too cold. It is just right for human life. The goldilocks planet in the article is called Gliese 581g. It is 20 lightyears away from earth. Gliese 581g was considered inhabitable when first discovered in 2010 because it was just the right size and distance to have liquid water on it.

Scientists believe that 10 to 20 percent of all stars may have inhabitable planets. This is based on the fact that only 11 years were required to find this planet. Based on these discoveries I would love to live on this planet. I think it would be amazing to be able to see an eternal sunrise. It would also be cool to be able to find new plants and animals possibly getting to name one after myself. I am not sure if there is alien life here or anywhere in the universe. However, I believe that it is possible due to the fact that God made us and am open to changes in our knowledge about extraterrestrial life.

A goldilocks planet is one that is not too hot and not too cold for habitation. The planet this article says is truly the first habitable planet is called Gliese 581g. It is considered "just right" because it is the right distance from it's hub star which is known as the red dwarf star Gliese 581. It is believed to be a rocky planet with an atmosphere, temperate regions and most importantly, water. Gliese 581g is 20 lightyears from earth and was announced in September 2010. At first in 2007 it was thought to be inhabitable because it was too close to red dwarf star which means that it would be too hot for life. But that was a totally different planet known as Gliese 581c. Another planet scientists believe is inhabitable in that same planetary system is planet Gliese 581d because it faces the dark side and would be too cold because of no light. So far scientists have discovered 6 planets that orbit the red dwarf star.

Once the planet has been fully checked out by scientists and other experts and they could prove that humans could live there, I might visit or live on the planet but only in the terminator area. But there would definitely have to be oxygen to breathe and some type of food supply there before I would go. I don't really believe in alien life forms on other planets unless it would be something like strange kinds of plant forms or micro-organisms that we've never known. I also don't think that alien life forms would be the type of monsters and aliens we see on tv or at the movies, but I wouldn't want to take the risk of finding out!

A goldilock planet is a planet that set its self within its habitual zone of stars.A habitual zone if you did not know is a planet that is around lots of stars and temperature is set at a good degree.I believe the name is Gliese581d and yes the numbers are part of the name. It is about 20 light years away which is very very far. It was discovered in 2010 which was not to far away from now and it was not inhabitable at the time because of its size.

Their are some inhabitable stars that scientist have spotted and observed over the years. I would live on this planet but i would need lots of plant so i breath because i have oxygen and they have carbon dioxide. and i would start christianity there instead worldly thing. It will be Jesus world and not the worlds world.I think it is interesting it would be weird because I am not sure if God did the same as he did us.For example I am not sure if they would have prophets or the word. AND I MADE A MISTAKE IT WAS 2007 WHEN IT WAS DISCOVERED.

A Goldilocks planet is when it is not too hot or not too cold. The name of this planet is Gliese. In this article it said that it was 20-light-years from Earth. The year that it was discovered in was 2007. Also in the article it said that Gliese d was habitual. I would not live in that planet because i wouldn't know what would be on that planet. Also because then i wouldn't know who would be on that planet in the first place. What i think is that it seems weird because i think that there is no such thing as aliens being on the earth.

Here is my response and answers for the blog. First a goldilocks planet are planets similar to earth. They are planets that are earth-like and that are not too hot or too cold. The name of this goldilocks planet is Gliese 581g. This planet is 20 lightyears away from the earth.

The reason why it was conidered inhabitable in 2010. It was considered inhabitable because it was the appropriate size and just the right distance form its star to have liquid water on its surface. To scientist knowledge 10-20% of all stars may have habitable planets. Honestly speaking I wouldnt visit this planet. The reason is because I woud'nt feel comfortable and because of man discoveries their still could be flaws on the planet that are life-threatning. In my opinion I dont think there is any other lifeforms. Until proven of aliens I WILL NOT BELIEVE.

While studying planets scientists came across a star. It is known as the Goldilock planet.This planet is not to hot or too cold. It would be Heaven for many people.It is called the Gliece 581g.

It is 20 lightyears away from earth the mighty planet.It was founded in 2010 by scientists. This star probally soon to be planet is just like earth. It is not to close to the sun like earth.No i would not live on that planet.

1. The way I describe what a "Goldilocks" planet is that it is not to hot nor to cold and people and vegetation can live there.
2. The name of the planet is Gliese 581g.
3. The distance between earth and this planet is 20 light years away.
4. The reason why is because this planet was not hot nor cold it also that it showed evidence of life and also
5. The reason why is because of all the rocky land and liquid water and things of that sort.
6. Yes, i would visit this planet the reason why is because it would be cool to just see what a different planet looks like and stay there for like a whole week without melting to death or stuff like that.
7. Me personally do not believe in aliens because if God only made life on earth ........ well that's what my Bible tells me so no i do not believe in aliens.

A Godilocks planet is a planet that is not too hot or cold.... Just like in the fairy tale of Goldilocks and the porridge. The planet that was discovered is named Gliese 581g. This planet is located 20 light-years from the Earth we live on. It was dicovered in 2007 and was thought to be inhabitable at first because it was said that it orbited too close to the hot dwarf star, Gliese 581. Scientists beleive that Gliese 581d is not able to hold living life because it is too cold. If it had a greenhouse and a thicker atmosphere, then it could possibly be habitational.

I would like to stay on Earth for various reasons and not go to this foreign planet. One reason is because this planet is proven safe for now but scientists are humans and can mistake this planet as safe when it might not be. It could blow up if it rbited too closely to Gliese 581 and there i will be..... so i would rather stay on Earth where God assigned me to live in the first place. I don't beleive in aliens point blank period. There is not much else i can say about that. Until i see an alien life form appear at my door saying, "hello earthling" or "we come in peace," i wont beleive in them. This is my blog!!!!!

4)Because they thought it was too close to the star, and the gliese 581d was the cold part of the habitable planet
4a)It was discovered in 2007


5)The other planet discovered was called "sex c" another gas planet like jupiter

6)Um,well I might visit itin the future after it has been extablished but I'm not sure because I have become accustomed to Earth.

I think a goldilock planet is a planet that is just right for that certain person as in the story. The name of the planet is called Gelise 581g, the distance of this planet is 20 light years from Earth this planet was first discovered in 2007 which would seem uninhabited because the planet would be too close to the star therefore making it too hot for anyone to live on. There are plants scientist think that may habitable on that planet because the planet should have a very strong greenhouse for it to be more warm on that planet. I would never want to go to that planet because if there are terminator aliens on that planet most likely they would not want to make friends with someone who looks differently form them. I also doubt that aliens are actually on that planet because God never said in the bible that he made aliens therefore I don't believe in aliens.

A goldilocks planet is a planet thats not to hot or cold. It is the right size and distance to have liquid on the suface.This new planet is very earth-like and can possibly have vegatation on it.The name of the planet is Gliese 581g. Gliese 581g is 20 light years away from the earth. In 2007, they did say that Gliese 581g was habitat, but that was a mistake. It turns out that the orbit was to close to the star.


That meant that the planet was to hot for life. There are some other habitat planets like Gliese 581d. I wouldnt want to visit or live on this planet because i dont feel like traveling 20 light years away to some unknown planet that might not be safe to live on. Also i dont like fly in spaceships or space. I mite get motion sickness. I dont believe in aliens not because i never seen them but because the BIBLE doesnt say aliens exsist.

This planet was discoverded in 2007.This planet was considered uninhabitable because it was too close to a star ,which means it would have been to hot. Yes, there are many more planets that scientist have discovered. Such as Gliese 581d which has recently been discovered. I would not be the one to move on another planet because i never liked the concept of going into space.

First of all, this article is interesting. A "goldilocks" planet is a planet is that is not too hot and not too cold. Basically, it's just right. Just what Goldilocks said about the porridge.There are many planets the scientist discovered, but the goldilocks planet is Glieses 581g. The star of this planet which is Glieses 581 is about 20 light years from planet Earth. Glieses 581c was declared in 2007 as a potentially habitable. At first it was considered a habitable planet but its orbit is too close to the star so it is too hot. There are other planets that scientist consider potentially inhabitable. Two other planets are Glieses 581d and Glieses 581g.

I wouldn't want to live or visit this planet. If it is too hot and not a lot of coolness, I just wouldn't like it. I like heat but too much is a little much for me. Also, some other planets are a little cold. I don't like the cold. One of the planets needs a thicker atmosphere, so it is kind of cold there. I think that God may have created other beings that are aliens to us. It does seem exciting to learn that there might be Terminator Aliens.

Yes i would visit this planet. I would visit this planet because i would like to see its colors in person. Also as scientist say there should be aliens I would like to see them prove that.

A Goldilock planet is a planet that lies within the habitable zone of a star. The habitable zone is a thin shell around a star where the temperature on a planet’s surface may be just right for liquid water to exist, and perhaps life as well. The term come from the tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The story was about a little girl who chooses among items in a bear’s home discarding those which are too extreme. A Goldilocks planet is a planet not to hot, not too cold.

The name of the planet is Gliese. The planet Gliese is 20 light years from earth. It was considered inhabitable because the scientist thought it contained water. It was discovered in 2007. There are other planets scientists think may be inhabitable. I would not live on this planet because you can be killed going into space and I would not like to go. I do believe that there are life forms on other planets because if God made us on this planet there probably are some life forms on other planets.

This planet was discovered in 2007. It was later found to orbit too close to the stars so that way it was making the planet to hot for living.


No, I would not visit this planet because i just dont like goin into space i dont want to see how it feels either but it seems like the temperature is cool enough for me to live there.

A Goldilocks Planet is a planet that has a atmosphere, has water, and is not too hot or cold. The planet is called Gilese581g. The reason is that scientist say it circles the red dwarf star Gilese581 about every 37 days. Gilese581g is about 20 light-years away from Earth. The reason they said it was inhabited was It had water, a atmosphere, it was the right size, and is was not too hot or cold.

The planet was discovered in 2010. Scientist say there have been planets that might be inhabited. I would not like to live or visit these planets. The reason is that I do not know if the water is good, if there is any food, and if there were things living there, would they eat me. I think alien life forms are cool.The reason is that no one knows if they exist, and if they did, many people would be surprised to see an alien. So this is my science blog.

This is for my blog, the goldilock planets is a planet that is not too hot and not too cold, it is medium (warm). Glieses 581g is the name of the goldilocks planet, also the astronomers had called it earth like. The star, Glieses 581 us twenty light years away from our plant which is called earth. In 2007 they had announced the planet which was Glieses 581c as potentially habitable. But that was a mistake because its orbit was to close to the star which made it to hot.

The scientists think that there is other planted that can be considered potentially inhabitable. I wouldn't want to live on that planet or visit it because if I go on the ship I don't know what would happen to the engine. I wouldn't want to go on because it might be to dangerous for me and that it probably wouldn't reach the requirements I may need to survive. I may never believe on any alien life form, even if I see it I wouldn't believe because know where in the Bible does it say that God made any life forms on the planets above. But I just can't believe in that, because i have learned that some planets are not a good place to live.

A goldilocks planet is one that is not too hot and not too cold for habitation. The planet this article says is truly the first habitable planet is called Gliese 581g. It is considered "just right" because it is the right distance from it's hub star which is known as the red dwarf star Gliese 581. It is believed to be a rocky planet with an atmosphere, temperate regions and most importantly, water. Gliese 581g is 20 lightyears from earth and was announced in 2010.

Another planet scientists believe is inhabitable in that same planetary system is planet Gliese 581d because it faces the dark side and would be too cold because of no light. So far, scientists have discovered 6 planets that orbit the red dwarf star.

Once the planet has been fully checked out by scientists and other experts, and they could prove that humans could live there, I might visit or live on the planet but only in the terminator area. There would definitely have to be oxygen to breathe and some type of food supply there before I would go. I don't really believe in alien life forms on other planets unless it would be something like strange kinds of plant forms or micro-organisms that we've never known.

The Goldilocks planet is not hot not to cold, so it's just right. The name of this planet is Glisese 581 and it's 20 light years away from earth. this planet was founded in 2007. It was first dicovered as inhabitable because they found out that it orbits around a star which makes it to hot for anyone to live there. Scientist have found another planet that is ihabitable which is Glisese581d. Is' to cold and has thick atmostphere. I wouldn't live on either of these two planest because i don't like it when it gets to and when it gets to cold. But i would like to visit these planets to see what they would be like. God could have created other creatures and beings on different planets. It would be iteresting to see what they would look like and to see if they acually look the way we depict them.

Well, a goldilocks planet refers to the story of Goldilocks and the three bears. Goldilocks, in the story, is going through the bear's house and happens upon porridge. One porridge is too hot, the other too cold, but she finds the perfect porridge at the end. The little bears porridge is neither too hot or too cold, it is just right. A planet referred to as a goldilocks planet is saying the planet is neither too hot or too cold, but just right. The name of this goldilocks planet is Gilese 581g. This planet is 20 light years from earth. This planet was first discovered in 2007, but was later decided to be inhabitable because they, scientists, said the planet orbited too close to the star and would be too hot.

Scientists do believe there are other planets that are habitable planets. Scientists believe the Gilese 581d is habitable, but the planet will be cold if the greenhouse effect does not kick in. I would, personally, not go to that planet unless earth was dying. One reason is because there are so many things that could go wrong. Scientists are making guesses based on observatories and telescopes, but they theselves have not been to the planet. Let's say they calculate wrong and we go to the planet and burn up on the way in. What if the telscope was playng tricks on the scientists and the blue and green sceneries are just blurs of blue deserts. They could exists because we are talking about a new planet. For me to go there, scientists would have to go there themselves and try all the experiments and take long years of research. My second reason of why I would not go is because it would take 20 light years just to get there. In order to get to that planet in 20 years, we have to go at the speed of light. Can we even do that yet? Also that is too many years of my life gone to go to a planet at which I might die before landing. No, I am pretty sure I would not go Gilese 581g.

I do not believe in alien life forms. Yes, I have watched movies of aliens, but those are just figments of director's imagination. I don't think alien life is possible. Also, I think if there were aliens formed, they would have been mentioned in the Bible. You could say that the aliens are just other human beings because it says that in the Bible God created human beings, but then how would they hear the news of Jesus and have a chance to be saved? God gives everyone a chance to be saved. Also, why would Jesus choose earth to live, die, and resurrect at instead of Gilese 581g? I highly doubt there are real alien forms, but I have been proven wrong before.

A Goldilocks planet is a plant where it is the right climate and temperature to substain life.The planet's name is Gliese 581g. Earth is appro. 20 light years away. Planet was discovered in 2007. It was considered inhabitable because it would need a better atmosphere to warm up the planet to make it habitable.

Because of the discovery of this planet, it leads scientist to believe that there are many more. I wouldn't. As much as Earth is pretty bad, I would take my chances with Global Warming than another planet. I would wait for feedback from other people who had been there. I would be extremely skeptical. In all actuality, if God wanted to, he could make life on other planets. You just never know. I don't believe there are but if it is in God's will, then yes.

A Goldilocks planet is a planet that is not too hot or no too cold. It’s also a rocky place, with temperate regions, and crucially, liquid water. The name of the planet is called Gliese 581g. Gliese581g is about 20 light-years from Earth. Gliese 581 is one of the closest stars to us. Gliese 581 is the largest known planetary system outside our solar system because scientists have discovered 6 planets orbiting the red dwarf. Planet Gliese 581 c, in 2007, was announced as habitable. They then later found that it as too close to the star so the planet was to hot for life.

Also Gliese 581 d was thought to orbit on the cold side of the habitable zone. The planet could harbor life but it would need a thick atmosphere to warm up to the point of habitability. Yes I would like to visit this planet because I would like to go to another planet besides Earth to see how it is like. Also I would like to visit because I like to travel to different places. It also seems like a cool place to visit or live on because it would be nice to see if you can live on it the same way as you live on Earth. I don’t think there are alien life forms anywhere and I hope there aren’t. I don’t want aliens to be real because they seem weird and seem like they would get in the way of how things are supposed to flow.

A goldilock planet is a planet whose temperature is in between, not too and not too cold. The plantet is Gliese 581. It is 20 light years away from earth. Scientists do believe that the planet is habitable in 2007. I would like to visit Gliese 581 because it seems like a nice place to go. I think God has created alien life forms. But not the way the directors produce them. I would like to meet one actually.
