Panspermia... the hypothesis that life exists throughout the universe, distributed by meteoroids, asteroids, comets, planetoids, and also by spacecraft in the form of unintended contamination by microorganisms.

TRAPPIST-1 (2MASS J23062928-05022851) is an ultra-cool dwarf star that is slightly larger but much more massive than the planet Jupiter, located 39.5 light-years from the Sun in the Constellation Aquarius.
