The seven Earth-sized planets recently discovered around the TRAPPIST-1 star will soon be probed for signs of life with our James Webb Space Telescope, launching in 2018. With the extended wavelength capabilities, it will be able to see if their atmospheres have water, methane, carbon monoxide/dioxide and/or oxygen. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/2m4p8Xc
