NEWS from ESO and NASA:The number of TRAPPIST-1 exoplanets grows to seven!
Summary of what is known today:The seven Earth sized planets orbit a sun ~40 light years away. The planets closely orbit their sun; their "year" is under two weeks! Their sun is a cool dwarf star only slightly larger than Jupiter. Three of seven planets are in a habitable zone where life could form.
TRAPPIST South at the ESO La Silla Observatory used an FLI ProLine PL3041 camera to discover five of the seven exoplanets.
