English term or phrase: all bets are off
The equations used by these astronomers were formulated in terms of circular orbits and so even though the companion appears to allow stable orbits beyond 0.6 AU, the calculation is not strictly valid because 70 Virginis B does not possess a circular orbit. The habitable zone extends from 0.36 AU to 2.7 AU. Because 70 Virginis B is in such an eccentric orbit, its formation mechanism is perhaps qualitatively different from that which has formed the other giant extrasolar planets, because they are all in more or less circular orbits. It would seem, therefore, that ***all bets are off*** for finding habitable worlds around 70 Virginis, because the system may have formed in the same way as a binary star, rather than as a single star with a planet-forming disc.

Σύμφωνα με το λεξικό της σλανγκ:
all deals are cancelled, all agreements are forgotten
Στο Urban Dictionary:
an expression meaning a situation in which one factor alone can change or cancel out everything
When Janine is around Corey, all bets are off... the poor dude just can't be himself anymore.

Οπότε η σημασία φαίνεται να πηγαίνει προς τα:
όλα παίζονται
τίποτα από τα προηγούμενα δεν ισχύει
δεν μπορεί να γίνει καμία πρόβλεψη
