Have Fun With The Apocalypse, Suckers: Possible Livable Solar System Discovered

September 8, 2010


Did I mention it's only 127 light-years away? Start packing the rocketship! Haha, not you. You're not coming.

Astronomers have discovered a planetary system containing at least five planets that orbit a star called HD 10180, which is much like our own Sun.

Christophe Lovis from Geneva University's observatory in Switzerland was lead researcher on the study. He said that his team had probably found "the system with the most planets yet discovered".

"This also highlights the fact that we are now entering a new era in exoplanet research - the study of complex planetary systems and not just of individual planets," he said.

They say this is the "richest" system of exoplanets - planets outside our own Solar System - ever found.

Richest system of exoplanets ever found?! Count me in! You think ol' moneybags here needs a pool boy or something? Because if not I can also cut grass. Granted not very well on account of the whole "drinking problem" thing, but hey -- you get what you pay for (in this case you only paid enough for a guy to hide in your shed and look through old Playboys).

Thanks to kipperoo, who's coming with me to help steal the planets' adamantium ala Avatar and then coming back here to f*** all the robots up with our new claws.
