Will Trappist-1 Finally End Our Feeling Of Solitude In Cosmos

By on February 25, 2017

We have been on a crazy hunt for life in the cosmos since the time we came to know that other stars, like Sun, do have planetary systems similar to our own. We badly want to get some relieve from the feeling of loneliness in the infinite universe.

Our telescopes and our mechanical ambassadors that we have been sending to nearby planets in our own solar system with the hope of seeing even the slightest of a possibility that we have neighbors in the cosmos or at least there used to be some at times have so far return back with a big NO.

But hold on! We are not going to give up. With evolving technology, we are already broadening our hunt area in the universe.

So where are we right now in our search for life in the chaotic universe? We are on TRAPPIST-1. A relatively dwarf star with it’s own planetary system. At least seven rocks discovered so far.

So, what is special about this newly discovered planetary system?

3. The System is Relatively Close to US, But How Close?

At about 40 light-years (235 trillion miles) from Earth, the system of planets is relatively close to us, in the constellation Aquarius. Because they are located outside of our solar system, these planets are scientifically known as exoplanets.

4. Too Early to Pack For TRAPPIST-1, Let’s Extend Lifespan First

The fastest spacecraft ever launched, NASA’s New Horizon spacecraft, which flew past the dwarf planet Pluto in 2015, is currently dashing out of our solar system at about 32,000 miles per hour. Traveling with this speed, it would take the New Horizon some 817,000 years to reach TRAPPIST-1 and its offsprings.

5. Largest Batch of Earth-Size, Habitable-Zone Planets Around Sing

The discovery sets a new record for greatest number of habitable-zone planets found around a single star outside our solar system. All of these seven planets could have liquid water – key to life as we know it – under the right atmospheric conditions, but the chances are highest with the three in the habitable zone.
