Not really a blog update, but I saw this on Twitter and fangirled hardcore.

It has come to IGN’s attention – via nytimes.com’s badass nerd news section, that NASA has not only discovered a strange bizarro planet that orbits two stars at once, but that astronomers involved are informally calling it Tatooine – after George Lucas’ famed fictional Star Wars homeworld to both Anakin and Luke Skywalker.

HOW COOL IS THIS?! And I’m so excited because now I can properly fangirl about this, since I now know what the hell they’re talking about. xD
