      "We're interested in smaller, yellow suns like ours. 'Unfortunately,' says Soren Meibom, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, 'a star like the sun looks almost the same through most of its lifetime.' "

      " The key word here is almost, and if you know what to look for, suns like ours do yield clues. For one thing, they tend to rotate more slowly as they get older. For another thing, young suns tend to have more sunspots than older ones do. Find a slow-spinning star with a fairly clear complexion and you've got a mature solar system that could harbor life. Such stars have to be relatively close to Earth for Kepler to resolve those kinds of details, and while they do exist, they take some sleuthing." 01-06
