I wonder if our visitors from outerspace (if they exist of course) have any photos of their trip there? Fascinating to see their holiday homemovies of the extreme lifeforms..wow..imagine that.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

i bet the planet would have some life form with bio-luminescence capability on the surface like plankton or shiny algae

Waterworld has become a cult favorite. How can you not like a film where Tom Petty is the leader of an elevator settlement? I think a sequal should be made that combines Waterworld and The Postman. It would be called "Post-Waterworld", LOL!

I wonder what kind of light the dwarf provides to the planet? Seems that daytime would seem like dusk, with a reddish hue of course.
that would depend on what chemicals was in the sky.

Also this world being six times the mass of earth one has to wonder what the gravitational affect may have on any potential for life there,


Well done.. ;)

Yes with the exception that even on earth we know of live forms that existed with more than six times the mass of man (even more like 20X) and we also know of life forms more than six thousand X (times) less then the mass of man as well.

in the case of life forms it isn't the mass of the creature but the amount of muscle.  a creature born on our world would have trouble moving on that planet at least for a while.  where as the single celled variety shouldn't have any trouble at all.

Only partially. An atmosphere can absorb or scatter light but it can not affect the quality or quantity of light that is received.

In the case of a red dwarf star there is a big difference in the light arriving in the first place. Because it is much cooler than the sun it produces much redder light (hence the name). Even with an earth like atmospher the light would be lacking the blue wavelengths we are used to (as these are produced at higher temperatures than are achieved by the surface of a red dwarf). To our eyes the light would seem very red. As jbondo said, it would seem like dusk or dawn.

not real sure about it being twilight all the time.  a planet with six times the mass would hold in about six times the atmo.  meaning it would hold in more light.  thus it may be as bright there as here during the day.
