Eastside Science Café 'Searching for Life around Red Dwarf Stars' Jan. 13

The Eastside Science Café will host "Searching for Life around Red Dwarf Stars" at 7 p.m. on Jan. 13 at the Wilde Rover Irish Pub and Restaurant in Kirkland.

Planets orbiting red dwarf stars are likely to be the first that we study in the search for life beyond this solar system. At the January Eastside Science Café, join UW's Aomawa Shields to explore why these stars offer the best chance of finding habitable planets and how a planet's ability to support life is complicated by the unique properties of these stars. The Wilde Rover is located in downtown Kirkland at 111 Central Way.
