Amphithoe
  • Description

    TRAPPIST-1 e is a water-world of intense storms. Tidally locked to its primary, an ultra-cool red dwarf, the streaming convections of its currents keep the night-side from freezing. Rather than a moon, the planet has a thick ring of disorganized material that is crusted with outgassed particles. If they continue to accreate, they may eventually form a nearly solid band of ice with embedded chunks of nickle-iron.
