Star Wars was a great bit of visual SciFi but a real Tatooine-like planet was discovered by the Kepler space telescope. NASA produced an animated video showing how a planetary system, circling two stars, might look to a visitor. Binary stars are common but this is the first one discovered with a planet in a standard circular orbit.
Dual sunsets and sunrises sound super-cool, particularly when they exist for real.
