(ORDO NEWS) — In early 2016, while analyzing data collected by NASA‘s Spitzer Space Telescope , scientists literally shouted, “We’ve discovered an incredible planetary system!”

It was about the discovery of a single star TRAPPIST-1, holding seven exoplanets in its orbit, three of which are located in the habitable zone.

The most advanced terrestrial and space telescopes of mankind have turned their eyes to the constellation of Aquarius to explore a breathtaking planetary system 40 light-years away from us. This, it is worth noting, by astronomical standards – quite a bit.

On May 2, 2016, the exoplanet TRAPPIST-1 d was discovered orbiting TRAPPIST-1 , which is the third farthest from its parent star (like the Earth from the Sun). This rocky world, according to available data, can be quite an attractive place for the origin and maintenance of life.

We, creating such a laborious video about the potentially habitable exoplanet TRAPPIST-1 d, wanted not only to tell about the features of this object, but also to show how it might look. To make this possible, we have used the most advanced space simulator SpaceEngine.

In our video, you will not only learn why TRAPPIST-1 d is considered a relatively comfortable place, but you will also be able to admire the views provided by computer simulations.
