EARTH JUST GOT A NEW SISTER SOLAR SYSTEM!
Just a few hours ago after NASA announced the discovery of a potentially habitable ‘Sister Solar System’ just 40 light-years away from Earth. This new Solar system with seven Earth-sized planets orbiting a star called TRAPPIST-1.
According to NASA possibly all of these planets appear to be made of rock, life-friendly surface temperatures, with potentially host liquid water.
NASA just released mesmerizing a whole bunch of travel posters and fan art of theses coolest new place in the Universe for us to get all misty-eyed about.
“With the researchers calling it” a compact analogue of the inner Solar System.
This system is just like to our own solar system where if you were standing on the surface of one of these planets, the neighboring planets in the sky would sometimes appear even larger than our Moon does to us.
According to the NASA team, the closest planet only takes 1.5 days to orbit the TRAPPIST-1 star, and the sixth planet takes 13 days.
Compare that to our own Solar System, where the closest planet, Mercury, takes 88 days to orbit the Sun, and the furthest planet, Neptune, takes 165 years.
Holey-crap, this is an incredible discovery and everyone wanted to learn a hell lot about TRAPPIST-1 system.
In order to dedicated to our Sister Solar System, NASA complete with travel posters, infographics, videos, and glimpses into the future of our investigations of TRAPPIST-1.
We’ve waited so long in search for Alien life. Here we’ve posted a few of the highlights below (get high-res versions here) pictures from NASA.
