NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope Shown Existence of Water on the TRAPPIST-1 Planets

Ultracool TRAPPIST-1, the earth sized planets, 40 light years away from the earth, may have flood of water The international astronomers’ team used the NASA Hubble Space Telescope for the estimation of the water existence on the orbiting planets nearby the TRAPPIST-1 dwarf star.

It is recently suggested by Stephen Hawking, that the human beings will be leaving earth by next 100 years, because the earth may face a doomsday again. If Stephen’s statement comes true then we will have three options of planets, which have been recently discovered to make it our home planet.

While, there is also a discovery which makes all shocking, that TRAPPIST-1 Planets might have inhabited and hinted towards the mystery of the alien life beyond the earth.

However, the hydrogen gas is very light in weight, so it can be escaped from the exoplanets’ atmospheres and be detected with Hubble Space Telescope as an indicator of water vapor. Thus, these ultraviolet radiations from TRAPPIST-1 planets show that it might have lost the water flood in its history.

Dr. Vincent Bourrier, a project scientist at the Geneva University, said that, “The ultraviolet light is important for the chemistry in the atmosphere of the planet and it’s important for the development of life. So, it can help the development of life but it can also indeed be very dangerous and we need to make new measurements to better estimate the radiation to be able, in the future, to see the development of life on the planets. Now, this will help us to focus our observations on these planets to search for water directly.”
