L’exoplanète Trappist-1b

TRAPPIST-1b est la première exoplanète tellurique du système planétaire de TRAPPIST-1 dont la découverte fut annoncée en 2016.

The diagram, on right hand side, compares the sizes of the newly-discovered planets around the faint red star TRAPPIST-1 with the Galilean moons of Jupiter and the inner Solar System. All the planets found around TRAPPIST-1 are of similar size to the Earth.

Below is an animation of a flying-by Trappist 1b. Note this is an artist view.
