Questions involving stars that undergo unpredictable dramatic increases in brightness for short periods of time.
Would a solar flare hitting the earth cause rainfall? [closed]
If you have hydrogen gas, oxygen gas and heat together, it will trigger an (exotermic) reaction that produces water. Earths atmosphere consists of around 21% oxygen. Our sun is made mostly out of ...
Surviving a dark hycean world
A dark hycean world is supposed to be a hot water world with a thick atmosphere around a red dwarf star. This means it's tidally locked with one side forever facing the sun and the other forever ...
Best star for a Dyson sphere?
Whether solid or a swarm, a problem that occurs to me long-term in building a dyson structure are damaging flares and magnetic storms from the host star. It seems like the absolute best option would ...
Where should I place my Earth-like planet within my binary system?
I am working on a RPG setting which requires my planet having a nearby flare star. I understand from reading through other, similar questions and from doing some research, that flare stars are ...
Is it plausible to have a double-planet between a gas dwarf and an Earth-like planet? if so, can the Gas dwarf protect the planet from solar winds?
In my story, I plan to make a double-planet between a gas dwarf and an Earth-like planet, so is it plausible in a red dwarf or Ultra-cool red dwarf system? and if so, could the gas dwarf protect the ...
Flare star vs electrical grid
My planet is tidally locked, airless, and has no magnetosphere. It's located close to a flare star (5% solar mass, 11 Gyr old), and is in it's habitable zone. The strongest flare ever detected on ...
What is the most efficient way of mining energy from a flare star?
Set in the distant future, human is transitioning to a type 3 advanced civilization on a Kardashev scale in about a hundred years or two. We have nearly exhausted the energy from our Sun and several ...
How should a ship call for help on a sparsely populated planet orbiting a flare star?
Technological level - similar to contemporary. Yes, I mean a watercraft, mostly big cargo carrying ships. I mean only calling for help while being in middle of ocean and not being within line of sight ...
Effects of Red Dwarf CME (Flare) on Biological Life and Atmosphere
I have a planet circling an M-Class star (M3/M4). I'm trying to figure out what the effects of flaring on the planet's biosphere might be. Background: As some of you may know, M-class stars are ...
How to design an electrical grid for a flare star planet?
The most popular type of stars are red dwarves, which regrettably tend to be flare stars. Yes, I know that geomagnetic storms and power lines do not like each other. Technology level: More or less ...
Life in the water/snow line of a protoplanetary accretion disc?
So I was reading this article recently, titled Stellar Outburst Brings Water Snow Line into View: http://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1626. In short it's about a protoplanetary accretion disc around a ...
Is It Possible to Establish a Human Colony in a Flare Star System?
I am thinking about using Groombridge 1618 as a setting for my world. It is a main sequence star of spectral type K7.5 Ve, 67% of the Sun's mass. The habitable zone is at a radius of 0.26–0.56 AU. ...
