Discovery: At least seven planets orbit TRAPPIST-1


At about 40 light-years (235 trillion miles) from Earth, the system of planets is relatively close to us, in the constellation Aquarius. Because they are located outside of our solar system, these planets are scientifically known as exoplanets.

This exoplanet system is called TRAPPIST-1, named for The Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope (TRAPPIST) in Chile. In May 2016, researchers using TRAPPIST announced they had discovered three planets in the system. Assisted by several ground-based telescopes, including the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope, Spitzer confirmed the existence of two of these planets and discovered five additional ones, increasing the number of known planets in the system to seven.

“Don’t Believe Everything You Read or Hear” (No Matter How Trustworthy The Source)


The world is filled with information, but also a lot of misinformation, presented as if it were the truth. No single truth purveyor, no matter how reliable, should be considered an infallible source of accurate information.

Don’t just look at a usually-reliable source to do all of the thinking, judging, and weighing for you. People are people and people make mistakes and/or act from various motives and intentions.

Even professors may sometimes pass along unverifiable rumor as if it were the truth. And even textbooks frequently include numerous factual errors.

So always use your own mind, do your own research and check and double check the facts and sources of the things you read or hear.

Here are some tips to help you ..
