NASA 7 Planets: Core Emerging Facts NASA Wants You to Know
NASA 7 planets and Trappist-1 are terms trending now online following NASA's press conference to announce the latest discovery of a dwarf star with seven planets orbiting it. NASA has found over 2,000 exoplanets since its establishment several decades ago, but it continues to investigate if any of these is habitable to life in any forms. The latest discovery of dwarf star Trappist-1 and its seven orbiting worlds pose an interesting knowledge to space teachers and students alike.
There are however certain core facts that NASA wants everyone to know, and these facts were revealed during the recent NASA news meeting. The conference had many news reporters in attendance, and they asked importance questions that the general public would want to know. Some of the answers that NASA gave to these questions have been condensed to help the public comprehend them much easily.
Core emerging facts NASA wants you to know about Trappist-1
NASA 7 planets according to Mirror is located in the Aquarius constellation and 39 light-years distant from our own Earth. The seven orbiting worlds revolved around the dwarf star Trappist-1 and three of them show signs of having surface ocean and hosting life. The nearest planet to the star uses 1.5 days to orbit and the farthest uses 20 days to orbit the star, meaning that some of the planets have days and nights like we have on Earth.
It is estimated that Trappist-1 is half a billion years old while our sun is aged 4.5 billion years in comparison. While the Kepler and Spitzer spacecrafts had been instrumental in monitoring the new system, the James Web Space Telescope and other ground-based telescopes stationed in the Canary Islands and in the Atacama Valley of Chile will be highly instrumental to studying it farther. But then it is obvious the exact technology needed to penetrate the surface of these new planets is far into our future.
Answers to questions you might have with this latest NASA discovery
NASA 7 planets are proving an interesting knowledge by the day. NASA scientists reveal they do not currently have the technology to penetrate or access the surface atmosphere of these new planets but can only watch them from afar at the moment, Futurism reports. They will also share data about the atmospheric compositions or observations made about the seven planets and their host star after the studies have been analyzed by through scientific peer review processes. They also do not have a protocol on ground to handle a sudden discovery of life on these planets, but are developing technologies to take care of these things as they progress with more research.
