Look at the second column "Comparing Received Energy". It shows the planets by amount of energy received from their sun, not distance, and then compared to our solar system. Yes they are much closer but their sun is also much smaller. This diagram shows how much energy they receive compared to our planets, thus which of their planets are in the habitable zone.

The B330 is designed to be a standalone space station capable of operating in LEO or beyond.• The only accommodating launch vehicle and fairing for this large B330 spacecraft is the United Launch Alliance Atlas 552, stretched fairing.• What if the B330 was launched to LEO, then redeployed by two @ulalaunch ACES busses to a low lunar orbit to serve as a lunar depot?• What if the SpaceX V2 and/or the Lockheed Martin Orion were engaged as the transportation vehicles to and from the lunar depot?• If initiated soon, a lunar depot could be in operation by the end of 2020.

The final stage of SpaceX’s CRS-10 resupply mission for the International Space Station wrapped up Sunday, with recovery of the Dragon capsule it launched on February 19. The capsule was carrying 4,500 pounds of supplies and scientific experiment equipment when it made its way to the ISS, which was transferred over by ISS astronauts over the course of the past few weeks...............

SpaceX then recovered the capsule from sea, and loaded it on a cargo ship to be returned to port. From there, it’s headed to NASA, which is going to open it up and make use of the experimental results and other return cargo held within.................
