Forget Canada. If Trump wins, some of you could move to TRAPPIST-1. Its just 40 light years from here. See ya.
Editor's note: Light travels at 186,000 miles per second. In other words, we are reading about another "scientific" pipe dream.
The Jupiter-sized star, dubbed TRAPPIST-1 after the telescope used in the research, is too faint to see in the night sky with a naked eye and significantly cooler than our sun, so the planets in its orbit have temperatures similar to Earth's, a statement from MIT said.
The three planets are also the first ever discovered orbiting such a dim star.
"They could have liquid water on the surfaces, and on Earth life is critically dependent on water. We don’t know, but maybe there could be life there,” said Michaël Gillon, who led the research at the University of Liège, told the Guardian.
