Is there any scene more iconic from the very beginning of the Episode IV, the very first Star Wars movie, than the view of the two suns over Luke Skywalker’s home world of Tatooine?
Well, there actually are planets which could provide for a similar view and the largest ever discovered is called Kepler 1647-b. NASA reports, as published by CNet, the planet is approximately as old as the Earth and its stars are similar to our Sun, with one being larger and one smaller. The planet is too far to see with a naked eye and although it is located in a so-called habitable zone, it is unlikely able to support life as we know it. Too bad, just think of that sunset!
CNet writer thinks it should be named Tatooine II. I second that. Anyone else?
