Minimalist Illustrations Announce NASA’s New Discovery Of 7 Earth-Sized Planets
By Yoon Sann Wong, 24 Feb 2017
NASA recently unveiled its latest discovery of planetary system ‘TRAPPIST-1’ that’s located 39 light years away. It comprises seven Earth-sized planets orbiting a star that’s slightly larger than Jupiter and 12 times less enormous than the Sun.
According to the ‘TRAPPIST-1’ research team, the planets seem to be made of a rocky composition, and have climates that provide opportunities for NASA to uncover evidence of biology beyond humanity’s Solar System.
In line with the new unearthing, NASA debuted a collection of minimalist illustrated prints and travel posters by Amanda J. Smith.
