Venus ??[edit]

How on Earth (excuse the pun) did it go from 0.44 to 0.78 ?? --EvenGreenerFish (talk) 06:05, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

The value for Venus is wrong here (second-ranked is Mars not Venus). See example calculation in de:Earth Similarity Index or data_solar_ESI.txt referenced in Earth Similarity Index (ESI). The values in HEC: Data of Potential Habitable Worlds are calculated different. --Mahgue (talk) 18:28, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
The docs.google.com documents seem to be all broken. A copy of the table can be found in [1] slide 7. It is written in German, but for the table this should not matter. --Mahgü () 16:59, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Habitability or not ?[edit]

Citation: "ESI is not a measure of habitability, ..."

but the article is in category "Planetary habitability" and "Search for extraterrestrial intelligence". --Mahgü () 22:01, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
