Scaled Trappist-1 Planetary System – Activity 2

In this activity, students will compare the architecture of our Solar System with that of the recently discovered TRAPPIST-1 planetary system. This system surrounds a star that is less than a tenth of the Sun’s mass. As this type of stars are the most common ones in the Galaxy, TRAPPIST-1-like planetary systems could be the norm out there.
