What Would Redemption Look Like on Other Planets?

On Friday, the Daily Mail (UK) ran a story about a new study which suggests that Jupiter may have influenced Earth's climate in the distant past. A benefit of the study is that it may help astronomers find planets which could sustain human-like life.  It appears that many such planets exist in the "Goldilocks zone," (not too hot, not too cold, but just right!) including one reported in late March.
