    I logged in and spawned in the Trappist-1 system, and ALREADY every body had been tagged.
    Well, saved me a trip anyway...

    I believe that they just renamed the system and re-arranged the planets. Whoever discovered it under the older name is still the original discoverer.

    Sounds right. I was thinking exactly the same thing.

    Oh well, went there and scanned everything anyway, just for fun. Turns out it was just a couple jumps away from my home system with my DBX's ridiculous 50 ly jump range.

    Just on my visit there and I find that the inclinations of the planets are wrong.
    Inclination of all planets is more or less 89 degree according to Wikipedia. This is the screenshot with inclination differences of about 90 degrees between the orbits:

    I had scanned it previously, and only the star and some of the planets showed up with names when I logged in. The ELW is brand new, and at least one other.

    how does stellar forge update?

    Since Stellar Forge was created using the estimated mass of the galaxy, with currently understood models of astrophysics, with real known celestial data, to create an approximation to populate the rest of the galaxy... every time that real life astronomy and astrophysics has an update the Frontier team will put that into Stellar Forge? Will they update their algorithms based upon modified scientific principles as well? When they replace the approximations with the newly discovered actual data, will the entire rest of Stellar Forge then recalculate the entire galaxy? And by doing so little by little make the simulation closer and closer to a more accurate prediction of the real galaxy?

    Can Frontier add the capability of E players to use the actual astronomical observations from real life observatories, et al, to do actual scientific processing to help find more systems and exoplanets in real life? This could be something else that can be done while jumping for an hour to get to some destination.
