“This mass scattering could theoretically occur on our Sun, too.
A study published in the journal Nature shows that M-type red dwarf stars are not as stable as previously thought.
The M-Star is the most abundant star in the universe and the smallest hydrogen-fueled star. These stars are usually about 0.6 times the mass of the Sun.
However, based on variations in brightness caused by sunspots and other phenomena, the Sun does not appear to be more active than similar stars.
Researchers say they are studying 369 stars similar to the Sun in terms of their surface temperature, size and period of rotation. Studies show that an average star is five times brighter than the Sun.
