Tatooine, Real? Perhaps it all Happened in Our Galaxy and Not a Galaxy Far Away!

Luke watching a double sun set on Tatooine.

Hello Troops,
I'm blown away by Kepler's newest discoveries, like the first known planet to orbit a binary star system. Yes, this is a real Tatooine like planet straight from Star Wars found by the Kepler Space Telescope.


Please take a moment and read the short article below. Then watch the two short videos showing the planet in motion around the double star.

Space is truly the final frontier. We live in interesting times. You gotta love technology!

Mr. W.
