PLANET WITH THREE SUNS!
An extrasolar planet orbiting in a three-star system has been  discovered in 
Cygnus by a planetary scientist at the California Institute  of Technology 
using the 10-meter Keck I telescope in Hawaii, it is claimed. The  planet is 
slightly larger than Jupiter and, given that it has to contend with  the 
gravitational pull of three bodies, promises to seriously challenge our  current 
understanding of how planets are formed. If it's confirmed, it will be  interesting 
to speculate on what sort of calendar any potential inhabitants of  such a 
system might have.....


Still no definite date for the Shuttle Launch - just keep an eye & ear  on 
the media!
 
Clear Skies,
 
Terry Moseley
