3 Type of Planet Orbit Red Dwarf Star

The habitable zones of planetary systems orbiting red dwarfs are close to the host star.

It is unknown whether small planets orbiting red dwarfs are potentially habitable.

"The two methods for discovering planets each provide different information,"

"We can find the diameter of a planet by catching the shadow created when it passes in front of its star."

"We can calculate the mass of a planet by measuring the tiny gravitational pull it has on a star."

"Perhaps it's a large, but airy, gas-dominated planet like Jupiter, or a small, dense, rocky planet like Earth."

They discovered that planets orbiting red dwarfs are classified into three types based on density: rocky, gaseous, and watery exoplanets.
