3 Promising Exo-Planets found

V.I.P.
3 Earth-sized exo-planets have been discovered orbiting a red dwarf star that's barely the size of Jupiter. The star - named Trappist-1 - is only about 36 light years from Earth and the solar radiation on the planets is close to the radiation Earth gets from it's sun. The star is in the Aquarius constellation and since it's light is dim, scientists can get more accurate information about the chemicals and atmospheres on the planets. Also the NASA James Web Space Telescope that launches in 2018 will provide even more information. One or more of the planets could have life.
