Exoplanet candidates
Exoplanet candidates: this illustration shows the seven Earth-size planets of the 'TRAPPIST-1' exoplanet system, about 40 light-years distant. New 'decadal' astronomy missions will seek to develop observatories capable of characterizing the atmospheres of such planets - and searching for spectral signs of extraterrestrial life.
