An Update on the Potential Habitability of TRAPPIST-1. No Aliens yet, but We’ve Learned a lot.

One year ago, I wrote an article about the remarkable discovery of the TRAPPIST-1 planetary system, a system of seven temperate terrestrial pl

In general, SETI has preferentially swung its antennas in the directions of star systems with known planets, preferably of the potentially habitable variety.  Many of these candidate systems were discovered using NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope.  The detailed working of that instrument mandate that
