(Request) TRAPPIST-1 System in KSP

Recommended Posts

(For anyone that doesn't know what the title refers to, NASA recently found 7 Earth-size planets orbiting a star ~40 light-years away, press release here)

Am I the only one who wants to see this as a mod? Would it be possible to make this a mod using Kopernicus?

+1 to that!

Here's a web page with all the numbers you need to build the system. It's quite the crazy (and tiny!) place. The star is only 0.08 Solar masses, while the planets have semi-major axes of 0.01 to 0.06 AU and orbital periods between just 1.5 and 16 days. I image it'd make for a quite fun career.

I want a mod that replaces stock planets with Trappist 1. Like Galileo's Planet Pack and Centauri Dreams. That would be so awesome!
