In the belief that red dwarf stars may harbor habitable planets, after all, the SETI Institute will listen for intelligent radio signals from about
20,000 stars of this type. Most planets in the habitable zone of red dwarf stars are thought to always present the same side to their star.
Recent thinking has suggests that such tidally locked planets may be able to distribute heat across their surfaces, evening out extremes of high and
low temperatures. Concern has also been expressed that many red dwarf stars may flare up with energies destructive to life.
