BLOBS SURROUNDING M-DWARF STARS COULD BE BAD FOR ALIEN LIFE
M-dwarfs may be actively increasing the number of obstacles for exoplanets to support alien life. The survival processes may be inhibited in various systems around the small M stars. The said processes include the delivery of organic material and water to land mass habitable planets.
Carol Grady and her fellow scientists at Eureka Scientific arrived at this generalization by studying the images produced by the Hubble Space Telescope. The images (2010 to 2018) the disk of debris that surrounds the star named AU Microscopii.
The scientists are concerned about the blobs because they seem to be repelling vital material out of the disk that surrounds the planet. The debris field is actually an important helper in carrying life-supporting chemicals and water to the planet through bombardments.
Grady and her colleagues want to have more time with the telescope to unravel more of the mystery, despite the challenges. This endeavor may take longer to finish.
