Astronomers discover that solar-type stars younger than 50 million years, in addition to manifesting large unpredictable brightness changes, demonstrate a periodic variability indicative of the growth of huge star spots. A low level of spot growth on a star’s surface is a necessary ingredient for life on one of its planets.
