Welcome to the TRAPPIST website!

TRAPPIST (TRAnsiting Planets and PlanetesImals Small Telescope) is a project driven by the Origins in Cosmology and Astrophysics group (OrCA) at the Department of Astrophysics, Geophysics and Oceanography (AGO) of the University of Liège (Belgium), in close collaboration with the Observatory of Geneva (Switzerland). Mostly funded by the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research (F.R.S.-FNRS) with the participation of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF), TRAPPIST is devoted to the detection and characterization of planets located outside our solar system (exoplanets) and to the study of comets and other small bodies in our solar system. It consists of a 60cm robotic telescope located at the ESO La Silla Observatory in Chile.
