A team of scientists delves deep into the TRAPPIST-1 system with new information on the mysterious planet h and the exoplanets' harmonious dance in orbit.
Microbes could be jumping from one planet to the other in Trappist-1. Collisions could be causing the transfer due to impact.
NASA released the uncalibrated raw data from its observation of the newly identified star system, Trappist-1. Users will have to do some reformatting to interpret the data.
NASA unveiled its Trappist-1e retro travel poster. The poster is available for free download in different sizes.
NASA and astronomers worldwide will now work towards proving whether or not the planets in Trappist-1 are indeed habitable. Experts are expecting various missions and ground-based observations to focus on the newly discovered star system.
Telescopes around the world collaborated to confirm the existence of another Solar System composed of seven Earth-like planets orbiting a star. Three of the seven are found in the habitable zone.
The seven planets orbiting a neighboring star is a breakthrough discovery. The question arises: is there life?
The discovery of Proxima b as a potentially life-sustaining exoplanet raised interest in other habitable worlds beyond the solar system. When it’s time to leave, where will mankind go?
Two exoplanets in another planetary system are discovered to be rocky and researchers are studying their atmospheres to see if they can host life.
Astronomers have confirmed that TRAPPIST-1c and TRAPPIST-1b have rocky surface using NASA's Hubble Space Telecsope.
A team of astronomers has recently discovered three habitable alien planets that have Earth-like qualities. Interestingly, these newly discovered exoplanets are orbiting a nearby "ultracool dwarf star" called TRAPPIST-1, shedding more hints that life outside the solar system could be possible.
