Dust could help make alien worlds habitable

Another indiction that planets in a wider range of orbits than that usually allotted to habitable planets may contain life. We'd already learned that a case can be made for life on tidally-locked planets of red dwarf stars, if they have oceans and/or thick atmospheres. Now it seem that dust can accomplish the same temperature-moderating influence.

Clouds of water vapor could probably do the same thing. On Earth, clouds can certainly make a day a much cooler one. They can also keep away freezing temperatures, where they would otherwise occur, in the absence of sunlight.
