Comments to this post

An international team of astronomers has used the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to look for atmospheres around four Earth-sized planets orbiting within or near TRAPPIST-1’s habitable zone. The new results further support the terrestrial and potentially habitable nature of three of the studied planets. The results are published in Nature Astronomy.

TRAPPIST-1 Planets Probably Rich in Water

Comments to this post

A new study has found that the seven planets orbiting the nearby ultra-cool dwarf star TRAPPIST-1 are all made mostly of rock, and some could potentially hold more water than Earth. The planets' densities, now known much more precisely than before, suggest that some of them could have up to 5 percent of their mass […]

Date of discovery: Dec 4, 2017 Location of discovery: Mars, Sol 01923 URL:  https://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl-raw-images/proj/msl/redops/ods/surface/sol/01923/opgs/edr/ncam/NRB_568210621EDR_F0671846NCAM00354M_.JPG I found a statue on Mars near the Curiosity rover. It looks like a statue of Jesus. You know, the statues you see all over churches and books. The statue is small about 15 inches tall, but still standing after years of neglect. […]

Science Release: Hubble delivers first hints of  possible water content of TRAPPIST-1 planets

Comments to this post

An international team of astronomers used the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to estimate whether there might be water on the seven earth-sized planets orbiting the nearby dwarf star TRAPPIST-1. The results suggest that the outer planets of the system might still harbour substantial amounts of water. This includes the three planets within the habitable zone […]

Comments to this post

NASA has selected six astrophysics Explorers Program proposals for concept studies. The proposed missions would study gamma-ray and X-ray emissions from clusters of galaxies and neutron star systems, as well as infrared emissions from galaxies in the early universe and atmospheres of exoplanets, which are planets outside of our solar system.

Ultracool Dwarf and the Seven Planets
feedproxy.google.com
Comments to this post

Astronomers have found a system of seven Earth-sized planets just 40 light-years away. Using ground and space telescopes, including ESO’s Very Large Telescope, the planets were all detected as they passed in front of their parent star, the ultracool dwarf star known as TRAPPIST-1. According to the paper appearing today in the journal Nature, three […]
