TRAPPIST-1 Exoplanets

Seven Earth-sized planets identified by the Spitzer Space Telescope orbiting the small star TRAPPIST-1, 40 light-years distant. This artist’s conception shows the expected state of water on the planets’ surfaces. More images from Peter Eisenhardt and Michael Werner in tandem with their 8/13/19 show appearance.
