NASA announced today that it has discovered the first "circumbinary planet"--a planet orbiting two stars. While the planet's officially called Kepler 16b, astronomers are already referring to it as Tatooine, after the home planet of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies, which also had two suns (NASA even invited John Knoll of Industrial Light and Magic, the special-effects company behind Star Wars, to today's announcement).
