way.....<br />We would basically have so much starlight that it would be day light all year round so how would this affect the earth, plant life as well as evolution.<br />This is assuming no deadly radiation or other stellar stuff would affect us.<br /><br />I just want to know how life would cope with the light from our sun as well as residual light from other stars lighting the earth like day due to the number of distant stars in the night sky. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

There would still be some varation in light level. Life would adapt, but might parrish during extreemly bright periods, in some locations. A very thick atmosphere would protect from the often deadly in minutes radiation above the atmosphere.<br />In Northern Alaska, most plants grow rapidly even though the Sun does not set more than two hours per day from May to the middle of August. Keeping the plants warm enough in May is however challaging. Neil

If this solar system the way it is today were to somehow move near the galactic center I think we would get fried by the excessive radiation. That is why we are lucky to be out in the fringes of the Milky Way. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <em><font size="2">Bob DeWoody</font></em> </div>
