Find habitable zones in the region of red dwarf stars

To the infinite and to the most find. The search for habitable spaces in our universe is more than a mere yearning in the international scientific community, it is a question that concerns all our humanity since this may depend our future on the earth and the interaction with other cultures that can contribute Knowledge or vice versa, we can bring them parts of our culture and education.

The ardent task in the search for life on earth has begun and focused on areas where living spaces very similar to those present on earth. The regions around the stars where conditions could cause life to develop in a manner similar to that which developed on earth, regiments which in large part have water and oxygen.

A recent study by the Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) has found in red dwarf stars the ideal spaces for life to develop in a similar way to that developed millions ago Of years ago on our planet (Earth) can cope with the loss of oxygen in habitable areas. The study suggests that in some regions where water pools are present on the surface and an average temperature regulated by the distance of the seismic activity could be the preserves where life could be developed in a very similar way to the one that developed in the earth. In addition, it suggests that in the other zones of these planets the development of life by the high seismic activity is impossible.

In this artist’s concept, X-ray and extreme ultraviolet light from a young red dwarf star cause ions to escape from an exoplanet’s atmosphere. Scientists have developed a model that estimates the oxygen ion escape rate on planets around red dwarfs, which plays an important role in determining an exoplanet’s habitability. Credits: NASA Goddard/Conceptual Image Lab, Michael Lentz, animator/Genna Duberstein, producer Download this video in HD formats from NASA Goddard’s Scientific Visualization Studio

Some researchers have already spoken about this fact, one of those arguments is very representative in “Vladimir Airapetian” who is the lead author of the article and a solar scientist at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, when said:

“If we want to find an exoplanet that can develop and sustain life, we must find out which stars are the best parents,” and went on to say “we are coming to understand what kind of mother stars we need.”

It is really exciting to have found places where life could be created naturally to be planted later by man thanks to the spaces with capacity for the development of organic life.
