Superflares From Young Red Dwarf Stars Imperil Planets

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Violent outbursts of seething gas from young red dwarf stars may make conditions uninhabitable on the planets that orbit them. Scientists found that flares from the youngest red dwarfs they surveyed are much more energetic than when the stars are older. They also detected one of the most intense stellar flares ever observed in ultraviolet light — more energetic than the most powerful flare from our Sun ever recorded.
