Want to make a planet that can sustain carbon-based life? Don’t park it in orbit around a sunlike star.“For the long term, the sun may not be the best star,” says Edward Guinan of Villanova University in Pennsylvania, coauthor of a paper reporting a new model about the suitability of planets for life. Smaller, cooler stars called orange dwarf stars might be the most hospitable, he says.
Haha! Eat that creationists!
