Could life exist around red dwarf stars? That's one of the most important questions in our search for life in the universe. Red dwarf stars are the most common type of star and they live for up to several trillion years. So if life can exist around red dwarf stars, then life might be very common in the universe. In fact, the two closest planets to the Sun, Proxima Centauri and Barnard's star, each host potentially habitable planets (Proxima b and Barnard b).
