Superflares may be less harmful to exoplanets than previously thought
Superflares may be less harmful to exoplanets than previously thought
Astronomers have long suspected that superflares, extreme radiation bursts from stars, can cause lasting damage to the atmospheres - and thus habitability - of exoplanets. A new study published Aug. 5 in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society reports that they pose only a limited danger to planetary systems.

New satellite data reveal increasing proportion of world's population exposed to floods
New satellite data reveal increasing proportion of world’s population exposed to floods
New research used direct satellite observations of floods to reveal that the proportion of the world's population exposed to floods has grown by 24% since the turn of the century-10 times higher than scientists previously thought-due to both increased flooding and population migration. This marks an increase of population inside flood-prone regions of up to 86 million people, according to a team of researchers led by scientists at Cloud to Street, a global flood tracking and risk analytics company for disaster managers and insurers.
