NASA & TRAPPIST-1: A Treasure Trove of Planets Found

♪ A treasure trove
of planets found Astronomers are celebrating
a new discovery. Sean Carey, Manager, Spitzer
Science Center, Caltech IPAC The big news is that
around a very nearby cold, small star we
found seven rocky, Earth-sized planets, all of
which could potentially have liquid water. Three of them orbit in
the habitable zone around the star. And liquid water could exist on
any of the seven planets given the right conditions. Nikole Lewis, James Webb
Telescope Project Scientist, Space Telescope Science
Institute For me it’s mind-blowing. The first time I saw what
the system had in it, I was just like, “You got to be
kidding me!” Then I looked at
the data myself. I’m like, “Yup,
there they all are.” It’s just, I would have
never predicted this. It’s beyond, you know, anything
I could’ve ever dreamt of. The planetary system
is called TRAPPIST-1 after the Belgian-operated
telescope in Chile. TRAPPIST found two
planets in 2016. NASA’s Spitzer Space
Telescope, with the help of ground-based telescopes,
discovered five more. Michael Gillon, Principal
Investigator, TRAPPIST, University of Liege, Belgium I felt super-excited. Amazed by the very existence
of this system… was kind of… of
yeah… of shock. The TRAPPIST-1 planets are
extremely close to one another. From a planet’s surface you could easily see other
TRAPPIST-1 planets in the sky. If you were standing on
one of these planets you’d actually see a lot of them sort of in the sky whipping by on these very short
orbital periods. NASA’s James Webb Telescope,
launching in 2018, could teach us even more
about the TRAPPIST-1 system. It will be able to detect
the chemical fingerprints of water, methane and oxygen of
potential atmospheres, key ingredients in
assessing habitability. It is an excellent,
fantastic discovery. All images of planets are
artist’s conceptions. Jet Propulsion Laboratory California Institute of

  • I read slow but not that slow.When people make videos like this with someone talking and text on the video in three places, sometimes overlapping each other I would love to see someone take in all that and be able to describe the video. Any creator of video like this should be taken out back and jumped around on their head until they smarten up.

  • 7 planets for new pollution

  • The images are as perfect as a cartoon, drawing, CGI, or  painting!TRULY AMAZING…………………..GO NASA!

  • Oh i love space sooow much

  • Finally intelligent life has been found . If there is no life there it's a waste of a solar system. Sign me up when mission start I'd go there

  • لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له

  • The Earth is FLAT! Using hard science and the SCIENTIFIC METHOD. EXPERIMENT TO PROVE EARTH IS IN MOTION. PROVES IT IS NOT! I was a space buff. I wanted to debunk it. You can't! NASA is FAKE! Space is all theory! What pseudo science trys to make you believe without proof! Watch 200 reasons the Earth is FLAT. Eric Dubay. YouTube.. Then watch a lot more! Even Einstein couldn't prove Earth is in motion. Airy's Failure a SCIENTIFIC METHOD Experiment. Proves it is not. Thats just one. Laugh.. Insult me… But you can't show me any proof Usind SCIENTIFIC METHOD!!

  • Who started JPL ? ?

  • Hi guys -^_^-
    ..I really want to discuss something important. I do not mean to be negative but these type of stars M8V red dwarf has so many metal and little gas, the star could not be bigger than that and it is already have 7 rocky planet. I am afraid the rocky planets will not find enough gas to maintain atmosphere.
    did you get my point? I am right?

  • I see a movie in the making

  • Are Planets In Another Galaxy Or In The Milky Way?

  • First fact is that no technology has been developed to travel to the moon due to facts the moon gives off heat. Secondly the moon is the size of the sun therefore if you were to land on it you would not even see earth from the moon at all. Imagine how big the moon really is for us to see it in such detail. The closer you get to an object the bigger it becomes and this means the stars are even bigger than the moon.

  • in life their are a lot of educated fools. don't let college get to your brain because there are people out here smarter than you that waste your money in there water down educational system.

  • A treasure trove of CGI

  • cool

  • 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 .

  • 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

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

  • 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.

  • Fake science. Just artist graphic renderings of bodies that may actually not exist.

  • Guess what i just found a planet and i named it G=527196389936363627289263627826286363673383.

  • Does anyone know the artist of the soundtrack?

  • looks like nasa found a few more hollywood liars to lie to us and its easy to spot shame on nasa


    your "Staged" Alien agenda wiLL FAIL Miserably!!!!!!

  • thinks of something funny/clever to comment cuz I'm finally early to a video

  • 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

  • I really want to be one of NASA's guys.When I grow

  • whatever habitable planet we find, we could only dream to get there!

  • I'm so excited

  • 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

  • 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

  • we get the rope project down American scientist

  • هذه معجزة الله

  • good job Nasa! I can not wait to see pics of the James Webb telescope??❤?

  • liars no such thing as planetd

  • Can I get 20 subs please!

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

  • This reminds me of The Little Prince. :O

  • Liquid water and land? it is earth twins

  • it probly only look tiny cause it's far away

  • Maybe a reach will be here in 400 years

  • Earth is flat?No
    Your brain is flat

  • ( mars 2030 inceleme ) Copy search. yotube kanalı izleyin super..

  • NasA what are you doing with the money ? LOL

  • that red head has some emotional issues

  • NASA is a boondoggle that should be cancelled immediately.

  • ATENZIONE a DINO TINELLI che non solo da del falso al lavoro da voi svolto,ma fa cattiva propaganda sulla scienza e sulle scoperte scientifiche

  • 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 !?

  • 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


  • New home if sun ends

  • I hope there are no Indians living there.

  • Who else are here because of Life Nuggin

  • Stop the giant astroyd I'm a kid I don't want to die

  • When the sun dies, can i go here?

  • Are We Alone?

  • nice cartoons

  • Rouge system of planets!! Scary

  • haaaaaaa

  • funny how the trappist 1 rendering looked exactly like the illumati one world order cartoon, I Pet Goat…. good try though nasa lol

  • wow nice and incredible like me

  • 7397441503

  • Super Technology

  • Tip of the iceberg….

  • Nicole Lewis should not work at NASA if she couldn’t predict extraterrestrial habitable earth like planets. Shake my actual head ^_^

  • Is earth actually flat? Jk i know it isn’t

  • This star is gonna die or in the beginning stage?

  • So, u found my planet…

  • hey peeps btw if u are reading this comment then i want u 2 know that … THAT WAS SUPER AMAZING OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MEGA COOL I would love to know more about them plants they talking about also NASA I want u 2 know that i love u 🙂 =^o^=

  • Não acredita

  • …James Webb telescope launching in 2018… – yeah, right.

  • Come on man. Get a warp drive working so we can fly there.

  • ? WOW a really life earth ????

  • Hi Really great..This has already been mentioned in Indian VEDic Scripture. 🙂 OM BHUR, OM BHUVAHA, OM SUVAHA, OM MAHAHA, OM JANAHA, OM TAPAHA, OM SATYAM"…in Gayatri Mantra.

  • you found these planets, so you win $1,000,000,000!

  • Planetariums are cool

  • May b if life exist there in almost all planets and they r more advanced than us, they might consider each planet as a country or continent, and will b doing interplanetary travel as we do between our countries. If not they would have started migrations from one habitable to other habitable planet n colonising them. It will b more blissful in imaginations.

  • 2 years later…

    Where is that James Webb Telescope?

  • The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
    Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
    There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
    Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
    Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
    His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
    The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
    The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
    The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
    More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
    Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
    Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
    Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
    Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

  • 01:34 "NASA's James Webb Telescope, launching in 2018.." HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

  • i want a member in nasa.

  • Trappist 1d should be named "Strunta!"

  • "NASA's JWT launching in 2018" 😛

  • 1:35 , me in 2019: nasa's pretty bad with dates

  • Much fake news, the lords of the world (illuminati / freemasonry) are working right back from the Messiah / Jesus Christ, then inducing people to believe in these nonsense.
    1 John 5:19
    We know that we are of God and that the whole world is under the power of the Evil One.
    Research (YouTube> Mystery of the World, Natural Intelligence, No Hypocrisy, Inteligence), study the Bible, do not believe in anything.

  • this is like finding gold in the street lol

  • what difference does it make

  • Nice

  • The fact that we are on the edge of destroying our planet makes me think that we don't deserve another one. We cannot just go from a planet to a planet and destroying all of them. We must start acting responsible for what we have, and to change from within!

  • wow , what an amazing discovery!!

  • Anyone knows the composer behind the music?

  • Man has not respect for this planet! So why should we go to another planet! Not all men but those with power mean no good
