    Pretty cool. They haven't really called it Tattooine as the MSN articule suggests though, it's actually called Kepler-16b

    I'd be interested to know it's orbit! Presumably it goes around both the suns, but you'd get some weird "days" if its orbit went between the suns.

    Skimming through NASA's website, it orbits around both, and the suns themselves rotate around each other... weird! There are some animations on the link that are quite good

    Sorry about that! Still, can you imagine what George Lucas would have done if they had?! That guy's getting to be as greedy as a certain fruit-based ex-CEO...

    this comment on the bbc report is absolutely hilarious.

    It may resemble the planet Tatooine from the film Star Wars, but scientists say Luke Skywalker, or anyone at all, is unlikely to be living there.
    So wait, you are confirming that a fictional character from a movie is NOT likely to be living there? I think the BBC need to (for sake of a football chant), ask themselves "Are they NoTW in disguise!" with rubbish writing like that
