scientists says flares from young stars has potential to strip away the atmosphere from a planet

Scientists using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope found that violent flares from the host star may make planets orbiting it uninhabitable by affecting their atmospheres. Habitable Zones and M dwarf Activity across Time (HAZMAT) is a program in which Hubble observes stars that spreads violent flares. The goal of the HAZMAT programme is to help understand the habitability of planets around low-mass stars. The flares are believed to be powered by intense magnetic fields that get tangled by the roiling motions of the stellar atmosphere. Young red dwarfs are active stars, producing UltraViolet (UV) flares that blast out so much energy that they could influence atmospheric chemistry and possibly strip off the atmospheres of these fledgling planets. Scientists say that flares from young stars have the potential to strip away the atmosphere from a planet.
