A ultra-cool red dwarf star that's barely bigger than Jupiter and has high metallicity, which is very unusual for stars of this type because they practically border the line between brown dwarfs and Hydrogen-fusing stars, which are thought to contain no metals at all. Its lifespan is expected to last up to 5 trillion years, meaning that it will be around long after all of the stellar material for star formation has been used up.

This star is notable because of the discovery of seven exoplanets around it in Febuary 2017, which are all earth-like in size and properties and contains one of the best chances of searching for extraterrestrial life. Three of the seven planets lie within range of the star's habitable zone, making habitability and colonization very likely. It should also be noted that all of the seven planets orbit the star closer than Mercury does too our Sun, and the planets orbit so close to each other that if you could view them from one of the planets, their surfaces would be clearly visible instead of just a small dot of reflected light, similar to our moon in the sky. If placed in our own Solar System, the '''entire''' TRAPPIST-1 system would occupy the space between the Sun and Mercury, and still have room to spare for more planets.

This page is devoted to those stars within 50 light-years of UsefulNotes/TheSolarSystem. Many of these stars are red dwarfs[[note]]Yes, dwarfs, not dwarves. The only available plural for "dwarf" was "dwarfs" until Creator/JRRTolkien came along in the middle of the 20th century. See, for example, ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''.[[/note]]; only the red dwarfs closest to Sol (less than 12 ly) are listed here. Except Gliese 581, which is important.
