Holy Tatooine: there’s a planet with 4 suns, and two amateur astronomers found it.  While binary suns planets are rare, they do exist.  Scientist have found approximately 5 of them.  But this discovery is the only known quadruple suns planet.  Citizen scientists, Robert Gagliano and Ian Jek, have christened their find PH1.

Speaking of Planets: the Keppler Space Museum has discovered an earth twin about 600 light years away.  It’s located in the “Goldilocks Zone” (AKA: habital zone) of it’s star which means it’s neither too hot nor too cold for water.  And water, as we all should know, means life.  Scientists imaginatively dubbed this planet keppler 22-B.

For anyone who is looking for extremely entertaining book series to get into, I highly recommend the Iron Druid Chronicles. Written by Kevin Hearne, who’ll soon be writing a Star Wars Luke Skywalker novel in the upcoming Rebels series, the series is exhilarating fun and laughter. So far it’s set for six books, but the first three are the best, and it all leads up to the greatness of the third novel, Hammered. Click here to read our full review.

StarWars.com Interview with Andrew Kishino

StarWars.com posted an interview with The Clone Wars voice actor Andrew Kishino. Andrew is the voice of Saw Gerrera, the Onderon rebel, and he get’s pretty passionate in his interview as he recounts his own fandom and what being a part of The Clone Wars means to him.

StarWars.com: When I was watching the episodes, I felt that in many ways, they were really reminiscent of the classic Star Wars films. This is one of the first times in a prequel-era story that you’re seeing the good guys as the underdogs, because it is a rebellion. I was wondering if you were aware of that and you felt the connection to the classic films when you were recording.

Andrew Kishino: I hear what you’re saying. It’s funny; now that you bring it up, that illuminates something that I think was rolling around in my head as I was watching it. The classic films were heavy on character development and myth. There was a ton of action, but there was a lot of [character development] just for functional reasons because you were being introduced to them. And this sort of had that same feel to it, because it felt like you were at the genesis of the Rebel Alliance. This is the archetype from which these things are going to spring forth. So you’re going to see very mythological conflicts and relationships that will have a lasting impact and influence on the way these things disseminate in the future. So yeah, very much so. That’s a good point.
