Seven Earth-sized planets have been observed by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope around a tiny, nearby, ultra-cool dwarf star called TRAPPIST-1. Three of these planets are firmly in the habitable zone.

Over 21 days, NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope measured the drop in light as each planet passed in front of the star. Spitzer was able to identify a total of seven rocky worlds, including three in the habitable zone, where liquid water might be found.
 
The video features interviews with Sean Carey, manager of the Spitzer Science Center, Caltech/IPAC; Nikole Lewis, James Webb Space Telescope project scientist, Space Telescope Science Institute; and Michaël Gillon, principal investigator, TRAPPIST, University of Liege, Belgium.
 
The system has been revealed through observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the ground-based TRAPPIST (TRAnsiting Planets and PlanetesImals Small Telescope) telescope, as well as other ground-based observatories. The system was named for the TRAPPIST telescope.
 
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, manages the Spitzer Space Telescope mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. Science operations are conducted at the Spitzer Science Center at Caltech in Pasadena. Spacecraft operations are based at Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, Littleton, Colorado. Data are archived at the Infrared Science Archive housed at Caltech/IPAC. Caltech manages JPL for NASA.

We had satellites already when the men in space hoax was delivered. My tax money for an extreme sport? Cars exist, make the jorney, u arrive fatigued, gassed, abandoned houses r abundant, and I have said the first three out of the many dead r plastic cups along with that under 21 Brasil football team were plastic cups, but im sure if the footballers were asked from football to taxi driver or death, men would drive a flaming taxi right?!?!?... Still boycott NASA!!! We don't need it. It's an econo

Will nasa going set telescope on Mars,Jupiter moons,Saturn moons,Uranus moons ,Neptune moon and Pluto moon so we can see exoplanets very far and see exoplanets very close including space telescope near our planet's so we can see exoplanets much close and far away exoplanets in future !?

NASA is a boondoggle that should be cancelled immediately.

Earth is flat?No
Your brain is flat

NASA is lying. Not because the Earth is flat... It isn't.
But because they are stealing tax dollars to get rich!!!!
And spend very little on actual science.
the whole Flat Earth Movement is actually created by NASA
to make whisleblower sound like people who are dumb enough to think the earth is flat.

Finding planet is secondary first find out the space craft to reach the planet After that we'll find many wonders

we get the rope project down American scientist
Gabriel Sixton
whether we get dropped when we die for being a bad human to the size of our sun to about Jupiter the same planetary being the world which is easy to read being above the futuristic travel no cars just drone pack gimme fuel fly high water system
Gabriel Sixton
I'm positive there are water beneath the universe and the rope project would defeat the time or there is a planetary system below or a ocean region we estimate the sun to be big as sun to Jupiter distance the formula eliminating density by our heat space a(x-c) we are positive there is a sea volcano / sun a positive project eliminating the orbiting time of our planets . then do it send the rope down my elevators

I'm so excited

If there is a life on those planets, those life forms might have abilities, due to close proximity with other planets and the cosmic rays(radiation) bouncing of from planet's surface onto the other

Fake science. Just artist graphic renderings of bodies that may actually not exist.
Barry Dummigan
Humans have only been around for about 200,000 years which is a mere 0.004% of earths existence. (Approx) Given the fact that the universe is billions even trillions of years old we have almost managed to destroy our planet in as little time as it would take to blink an eye in comparison.

Amazing ! what does professor sanremy (1sanremy) think of this video? Thanks a lot

I agreed totaly with Jeffrey Z. below, Certes, Proxima Centaure l'étoile la plus proche est à 4,5 années-lumière et il faudrait 40000 ans pour s'y rendre à 30km/seconde. Quant à Trappist-1, qui se trouve à 40 années-lumière, il nous faudrait 400000 ans pour l'atteindre. Mais ô combien enthousiasmant d'en savoir plus sur ces planètes! Las! les humains sembleraient plutôt tout faire pour détruire la nôtre de planète et ses habitants nous rapprochant ainsi un peu plus de l'apocalypse. Ce seront peut-être les gens de ces exo-planètes qui nous remplaceront un jour lointain, à moins qu''un miracle se produise pour nous sauver de notre abêtissement criminel sans limite... Jean Janyn

how about sending your next rover to the polar caps on mars and testing that for life , you have never done it because your traitors and hide the truth .
