I'm having trouble with the Trisolarans being able to evolve as a species, much less progress as a technological people.

How does a race, dehydration or no, underground buildings or no, survive the molten surface or the syzygy without being reset to microbes?

I know--the traditional SF one impossible thing.

@naga Some of the catastrophes, I can go with. But one big enough to create a new moon? The planet would have basically been sterilized.

I also wondered about the secrecy of incoming communication with Red Coast 2. Surely other SETI projects would have picked up the signals, whether they could decode them or not.
