  • The relatively warm temperatures required on early Earth and Mars have been difficult to account for via warming from greenhouse gases. We tested whether this problem can be resolved for both Earth and Mars by a young Sun that is brighter than predicted by the standard solar model (SSM). We computed high-precision solar evolutionary models with slightly increased initial masses of Mi = 1.01-1.07 M☉; for each mass, we considered three different mass-loss scenarios. We then tested whether these… CONTINUE READING
