This weekend you can help our planet and ensure humanity's long-term survival by showing your support for #EarthHour by turning off lights for an hour at 8:30pm local time.

#ClimateChange is not a fantasy politically motivated deniers would like to project, but an actual global dilemma we all need to take responsibility for fixing. Saving the only place we or any other life can call home is a serious issue that demands responsible action. We cannot bury our heads in the sand and let our grandchildren's children deal with the aftermath.

Now more than ever it's up to us to do the right thing, so let's get to it... https://youtu.be/UZYiJLH2toY

Snippet from my upcoming book, Habitable Exoplanets: Red Dwarf Systems Like TRAPPIST-1:

"The current exoplanet picture being revealed through our telescopes shows us a Universe filled with the potential for life and civilization, even around stars we thought just a mere decade ago were inhospitable to life. With just a couple of star types that we can disregard in supporting more complex multi-cellular life forms like ourselves (these stars are Type-O, -B, and -A, due mainly to their short lifetimes of a billion years or less), over 90% of the rest are open to the possibility of supporting our type of life, and over 70% of these in one type of star alone.

Spoiler alert – the star type in question is not anything like our Sun.

In Habitable Exoplanets: Red Dwarf Systems Like TRAPPIST-1, you will discover some of the constraints and chances of exoplanets being habitable around the most abundant type of star in the Universe – Red Dwarfs. Red Dwarfs (comprising of both late K-type and all M-type) are at least 70% of all stars in the Milky Way galaxy. Their abundance comes from the fact that these stars are comparatively tiny, and thus much easier for the Universe to produce. Small as they may be, they have some interesting properties that both cast doubt and hope on their ability to host life.

While life has been located around our own star type (as we are here to talk about that revelation), it would be shortsighted to ignore the vast majority of stars simply because of some unknowns – many of which are quickly being overturned as you will learn about shortly." - Mathew Anderson

Internet without Net Neutrality? We just need to look to other countries to find out, and it's not good...

Fun fact! There are more atoms in the human body than there are on the surface of the Earth...
