Starman: Life on TrappistOne began as a result of a WQWWC prompt, a little over a month ago. I chose David Bowie’s song, Starman, as the source of my quote for a story based on a new scientific discovery. Trappist-1 is the name of an ultra-cool dwarf star, near the sun and discovered recently by astronomers working in a giant telescope in Chile. Three planets orbit this dwarf star, which are 40 light years away. Now scientists want to discover if these planets could sustain human life.

Here is the official story of Trappist – 1.
