New studies find TRAPPIST-1 planets are probably rocky, watery worlds | Michael Irving | NewAtlas.com | Digital Media Literacy + Cyber Arts + Performance Centers Connected to Fiber Networks | Scoop.it

It's been almost a year since astronomers announced the discovery of seven Earth-sized exoplanets in the TRAPPIST-1 system. Just 40 light-years away, TRAPPIST-1 is one of the clearest case studies into how planetary systems work and how likely it might be to find life elsewhere in the universe.


New research has calculated the densities of the planets and their atmospheres, giving us a better understanding of how they might look and how much water might be present.

But it’s the sort of question that often seems to get asked in today’s polarized environment. Small wonder, then, that the tattered condition of civics and U.S. history education constitutes a national crisis.
