New thoughts on red dwarf’s habitable zones and mantle that survived Moon-creating collision

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Stars - Scientists have long thought that planets had to orbit very close to small and dim red dwarf stars in order to be warm enough for life. New research challenges that assumption. See article.
g Abodes - A new study shows that portions of the Earth's mantle formed when the planet was smaller, and survived the planet's turbulent formation and the collision that led to the creation of the Moon. See article.
g Intelligence - The more afraid a person is of a spider, the bigger that individual perceives the spider to be, new research suggests. See article.
g Cosmicus - After a two-year delay, a human daredevil is now preparing to step out of a stratospheric balloon and attempt the highest freefall jump ever. See article.
