The red planet is cool but having a red Sun maybe cooler. Shining for literally over a trillion years, red dwarf stars might be the only options for life to take root on long after all sun-like stars are dead.

This has taken weeks to research, deconstruct, write and refine. Presenting a comprehensive article on @exploreplanets@twitter.com laying out the history of our solar system ☄️, and how space exploration teaches us that timeline. 🛰

This month I gave a talk to Physics students at my alma matter @Uni_Mumbai@twitter.com. It was nice speaking to them about my science writing journey, and career alternatives to just research or teaching like and space exploration jobs for Physics graduates.

If you can afford a Netflix subscription, you can support a science communicator.

It’s my birthday today, but don’t wish me. Instead, my wish is that you support any independent creator communicating , making the world a better, more informed place.
Support monthly or via one-time donations, but do it. It means more to them than the financial amount.

We landed on the Moon over 50 years ago so why aren’t we living there already?
I gave a @chaiandwhy@twitter.com talk yesterday about how water on the Moon is central to settlements there and what engineering challenges need to be overcome before we can!

Our next session has the moon-struck @uncertainquark@twitter.com examining the critical issue for humans to be on the moon for long periods: WATER. Given all the discoveries of water on the moon, starting from Chandrayaan1, it is time for a critical look. How much? Where? How easy?

Why should we explore the Moon? What science can be done there? How does the Moon aid deep space exploration? Check out my curated Moon page to learn all of that! 🤓

Pseudoscience asserts.
Science predicts.
Know the difference.

India’s Mars orbiter is often hailed as its best space mission. But despite orbiting the red planet for 6 years, it has a huge vacuum of scientific publications – less than 20!
