Goldilocks zone: Everything you need to know about the habitable sweet spot

"One example is the exoplanet TOI 700 d, discovered in 2020"

Interesting Goldilocks zone exoplanet. A variety of reports in the past were presented on this exoplanet.

The first habitable-zone, Earth-sized planet discovered with exoplanet survey spacecraft,

NASA's planet Hunter completes its primary mission,

'The First Habitable Zone Earth-Sized Planet From TESS II: Spitzer Confirms TOI-700 d',, January 2020. "We present Spitzer 4.5 μ m observations of the transit of TOI-700 d, a habitable zone Earth-sized planet in a multiplanet system transiting a nearby M-dwarf star (TIC 150428135, 2MASS J06282325-6534456). TOI-700 d has a radius of 1.144+0.062−0.061R⊕ and orbits within its host star's conservative habitable zone with a period of 37.42 days ( Teq∼269 K). TOI-700 also hosts two small inner planets (R b = 1.037+0.065−0.064R⊕ & R c = 2.65+0.16−0.15R⊕ ) with periods of 9.98 and 16.05 days, respectively..."

Using these properties listed,

I calculate, 2.2597 earth masses, mean density, 10.053 g cm^-3, and escape velocity 16.22485 km/s. Is it a truly earth-sized exoplanet in the HZ? Perhaps not. There is no published atmosphere for this exoplanet either,
