This astronomer's poem beautifully explains the monumental discovery of 7 Earth-sized planets
A few of the worlds might even be habitable.
The monumental discovery has prompted scientists to launch a website for the planetary system - and yes, it has an equally monumental domain: trappist.one.Researchers inspired by the new planetary system, which is about 39 light-years from Earth, are using trappist.one to publish fiction, artwork, and even poetic prose about it.
Called "Ode to 7 orbs", it beautifully explains the discovery and importance of TRAPPIST-1's seven planets.
