Today’s Google Doodle is a cute tribute to the habitable planets of TRAPPIST-1


NASA‘s exoplanet discovery is everywhere today, inspiring speculation about the potential for alien life on the three habitable planets of the TRAPPIST-1 system.

We loved NASA’s own TRAPPIST-1 travel posters, but they’re not the only ones to get in on the action. Google also posted some exoplanet-inspired art, in the form of a cute Google Doodle animation.



For more information about this exciting new discovery, we recommend checking out NASA’s TRAPPIST-1 website, which includes videos and information about how the system was identified, and what it could mean for future research.
