Tatooine Found, Hutts Unconfirmed

Scientists today revealed the discovery of the first planet to orbit a binary solar system, or in english, a planet with two freaking suns. The planet was spotted by the Kepler telescope, which has found roughly a fuckton of planets to date. It currently has been given the name Kepler 16b, much to the lament of everyone in the lab at the time.

The scientists who have been observing 16b say it’s not habitable, but then again Tatooine never looked like it should support life either. No word yet on a planet with three suns.
