Life in space. N.A.S.A. recently found seven new planets, three of which are in the habitable zone and, given the chance, might even have liquid water. They found it with the help of Trappist, a Belgian-run observatory in Chile. They then named the system TRAPPIST-1, after its founders. TRAPPIST-1 is a system orbiting around a red dwarf star – also called M-Stars – and here’s an image showing which ones could have water:
When you think about it, as unlikely as it is, there could be life on each one on the three habitable ones. Then, the life could communicate from planet to planet. The only problem is that we don’t know if they have habitable surroundings. I’ll leave the rest up to you, in the comments, tell me what you think the planets are like.
Here’s the video that NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory published on their YouTube Channel, it inspired me to make this post.
