Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic candidate for Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spent time campaigning last week in a state many progressives wouldn't consider a campaign priority: Kansas. CBS News' "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan sat down with Vermont's Sanders, a well-known face in Democratic politics, and New York's casio-Cortez, a rising star in the party after she defeated incumbent Rep.

Low-mass stars are currently the most promising targets when searching for potentially habitable planets, but new research has revealed that some of these stars produce significant amounts of ultraviolet (UV) radiation throughout their lifetimes. Such radiation could hinder the development of life on any orbiting planets. M-dwarfs are stars that are cooler and less massive than stars like our Sun, and are the most common type of star in the Galaxy, meaning that it is vital that we better understand them and the influence they have on their planets. Detecting terrestrial planets in the habitable zone — the region where liquid water can exist on a planet's surface — when they pass in front of, or transit, Sun-like stars is difficult. This is partly because we only see a small dip in the light as the planet crosses the star, and also partly because their orbits are long enough that we have to wait several years to observe multiple transits. However, because … [Read more...] about Ultraviolet Radiation from Low-Mass Stars Could Render Planets Uninhabitable
