In your experience searching for habitable exoplanets, do you find that stars in clusters or even binary systems have similar types of exoplanets (re: size, terrestrial, Goldilocks zone, etc.) that appear from case to case? Or is the type of planet arbitrary (as in, there’s no recognizable pattern)?

What is the possibility of life on exoplanets that are tidally locked to their home star? If the side facing the star is permanently too hot and the side facing away is permanently too cold, theoretically (of course), would there be a habitable “strip” in which could liquid water could exist?
To add, would extreme winds (due to the temperature difference) play a factor in liquid water’s existence?

Thank you for the response!
