Interesting to consider how much we don't know

that's why i am thinking of staying at 2k maps for now

Looks like the orbital fit is due for a refinement in the near future courtesy of the K2 mission. Should be able to pin down more details for planet h.

By the way: what star type (I mean not this kind of ultracool dwarf) would be optimal for TRAPPIST-1 planetary habitability? I mean less XUV radiation, but same orbits...

Many thanks symaski62 for sharing this very interesting paper, which significantly updates our knowledge about the TRAPPIST-1 system!!

Like you also wrote: From this research team we now got the period of planet h's orbit as 18.765 d (a 2:3 resonance configuration with planet g). The radius is found as 0.715 R_E.

Moreover, the researchers find for planet h an equilibrium temperature of 169+-4 K which places it at the snow line.

There is much more interesting info in this paper...

Hi,

with the above new data about planet h of the TRAPPIST-1 system, I was able to perfectly reproduce the mid - time of an extreme transit event of planet h (in coincidence with a flare of the star):

From the measurements reported in the paper:

Verification of mid-transit time of planet h in celestia.Sci , in perfect agreement with the observed time:
Barycentric Julian Date - 2457700 = 112.675 [days]

Here is the corresponding screenshot from celestia.Sci at the correct Julian Date of 2457812.675 days

Not bad ;-). But I suppose we are both using the same .ssc file (from Andrew).

Here is another neat configuration: a double transit of the closest planet b and the most distant planet h, at the measured time. Throughout, I have implemented all new infos about planet h from the above paper:

In Fig. 8 of that paper I scaled up the display and found a measured b-h transit at

BJD - 2457700.00 = 93.905 d

Here is the relevant sniplet from Fig. 8:

b-h_exp.jpg [ 11.79 KiB | Viewed 3536 times ]

The distance between successive ticks on the x-axis is 5.0 d.

Next I looked for the double transit in celestia.Sci at JD= 2457793.905 d and indeed, find the expected double transit of b and h exactly at this time.

This time the preferences panel is neatly docked on the left in this windowed display. I hope you can read the labels of the two displayed transit disks.

Enjoy,

Great Stardust.

This is good news, indicating that things are stable and the simulations are VERY accurate. It is also evident that a lot more serious GUI-based simulation code in this field is ahead of the celestia.Sci dev team ;-) ...

Thanks symaski62 for the updated ssc code for Trappist-h for Celestia 1.6.1.

Also for all the other info you provided. :clap:

Oh no! I take it all back. :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono:
