Event Details

Throughout the Milky Way Galaxy there are a myriad of stars which are much smaller and cooler than the Sun. Recent studies have suggested that many of those small red colored stars may harbor planets in regions where liquid water could potentially exist on their surfaces. Thus, we ask: could life be present on planets around these so called red dwarf stars or will the temperament of these stars render these worlds uninhabitable?
