Astronomers have recently found a binary star system, a planet that orbits two suns.  The planet, Kepler-16b, was named after the telescope scientists used to discover it.  It is about the size of Saturn and approximately 200 light years from Earth. However, don’t get your hopes too high about people living there; the atmosphere contains toxic gases and is very cold.
