“If we can identify another Earth-like planet, it comes full circle, from thinking that everything revolves around our planet to knowing that there are lots of other Earths out there.” -Sara Seager, professor of planetary science and physics at MIT

Did you know, not all stars produce the yellow light we’ve come to know from our sun? Blue supergiant stars exist and if a blue supergiant never rose above the horizon of a planet and we add in Rayleigh scattering? You get a low light planet with purple skies. Lunarpunk worlds could and most likely are real somewhere out there in the vastness of space.
