Picture of chapter 10 of my Klance fanfic- Let me catch my breath. 

Keith and Lance are really starting to get to know this alien family they have encountered. They are a little odd, however, but loyal. 

Basically, my fanfic is where Lance and Keith get stranded on an alien planet that has some… interesting views, and they think Keith and Lance are mates.

Honestly, I just want one of the other Alien characters, like J’onn or Mon El, to be like “same sex relationships were actually pretty standard on my planet” after hearing Alex come out, and be like “humans are the only race to have assholes thinking it’s weird”, “homophobia is a shitty human construct” etc

Nasa astronomers discover new solar system of seven planets called TRAPPIST-1 where life may have evolved on three of them

Life may have evolved on at least three planets in a newly discovered solar system just 39 light years from Earth, Nasa has announced.​

Astronomers have detected no less than seven Earth-sized worlds orbiting a cool dwarf star known as TRAPPIST-1.

TRAPPIST-1 is an ultracool dwarf star that is approximately 8 per cent the mass of and 11 per cent the radius of our  Sun.

It has a temperature of 2550K and is at least 500 million years old. In comparison, the Sun is about 4.6 billion years old and has a temperature of 5778K.

The six inner planets lie in a temperate zone where surface temperatures range from zero to 100C.

Of these, at least three are thought to be capable of having oceans, increasing the likelihood of life.

No other star system known contains such a large number of Earth-sized and probably rocky planets.

The longer the tail the more virile the male. The long dramatic tail of the male Emerald Prawn is a physiological marker to females of a males prowess, health and virility. Months prior to mating season, males will begin to seek out large expanses of feeding territory, to engorged, store fats and grow segments of their tails. The more dominant the male the larger the feeding territory, the larger the tail and chances of mating.

His long tail will be offered as a gift to his mate once copulation is complete. Females are entombed within tree hollows, where she will lay and rear her young. They will exclusively feed upon the tail offering.

The male will act as guard, protecting the tree from predators. Once matured, His large jaws will break the sealed tree hole, releasing his captive family. They will separate from that point.

Picking a suitable male is a serious matter. Juvenile males have been known to abandon their mates, resulting in the death of his mate and young.
