Kepler's Pixelated Trappist 1
When scientists and NASA announced the discovery of Trappist-1 last month, it came with the unusual addendum that raw observations of the star by the Kepler Space Telescope would be made available to the public as soon as they make it back to Earth.
That first download of data from Kepler came in last week.
The raw data is pretty much meaningless and indiscernible to a layperson.
But using a tool from NASA to process some of it, we now have our first GIF of Trappist-1: Told you.
