On July 7, 2018, Artash, Arushi and Vikas Nath discussed the dwarf star TRAPPIST-1 and its seven planets, all of which could fit into the orbit of Mercury without crashing into one another. By speeding up the orbits, they were able to associate each one with a note and translate these notes into music.
