Awesome link. This only considers planets around red dwarfs, the most common type of star. Most of these estimated habitable worlds would have to be close to it’s star, which renders the world tidally locked. Similarly to our Moon, these planets would revolve around said star, but would not spin. Meaning, one side would be in eternal darkness, while they other has permanent daylight.
