New planet found (maybe)

Astronomers say they’ve found a 10th planet in orbit around our sun. Several objects have been found beyond Pluto before, but this is the first large enough to be considered a planet – it could be at least one and a half times larger than Pluto. Exciting news!

    Here’s for wishing they’d call it Tatooine–

    You know– for the line “If there’s a bright center to the universe we’re on the planet farthest from” which yes was meant to be a metaphor but still, wouldn’t it be cool? :)

    Especially if it was an Ice planet. Because that would just be funny. Wampas on Tatooine!
