We discovered Earth-like planets but are they the next destination for human life?
What happens when you take an Earth-like planet and tilt it nearly on its side? For life, its not as crazy as it sounds.
Sunlight fuels photosynthesis here on Earth, which in turn sustains all life on our planet. But how would this crucial process work on planets which orbit fainter stars?
Professor Ted Bergin is looking for the elements that make habitable worlds. Come learn about how to make an Earth-like planet in his talk at #AAS235!
Low-mass stars exhibit a wide range of flare events. But it takes a coordinated effort to measure them all.
New research by astronomers at Cornell’s Carl Sagan Institute uncovers a novel way to search for the existence of life in the Universe. Flares from red dwarf stars, commonly believed to pose serious problems for habitability, might actually expose hidden biospheres through the process of biofluorescence.
