When the blue rings start appearing on the screen, this is the app’s way of guiding you on to the next planet. The rings show you the direction in which you need to turn your attention to next.
The images of the planets shown in this app are not real images. They are artistic impressions based on the observations made by Spitzer and other ground- and spacebased telescopes.
A feature only available on the VR-headset version is the ‘map’ of the TRAPPIST-1 system, indicating which planet you are currently looking at. This appears underneath the comparable characteristics.
The journey ends on the planet TRAPPIST-1e, which is the planet most like Earth. Its size, illumination and density are the closest matches to our home planet. This could be the most likely place to harbour any sort of life as we know it.
