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.

Some of my recent purchases! I started a washi tape collection and there’s still heaps on its way. My D.Va and Scully/Gibson/DeMaurier notebooks finally came and I absolutely love them. Also my new X Files themed phone case is my new favourite thing. I found those cute sticker packs while picking up my notebooks today. ^_^ lots of bullet journaling and writing to be done.

Also I ordered that Finnish phrase book like 6 months ago and it finally arrived so yay Finnish. I can learn things!
