Using data from Kepler and TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite), scientists have confirmed the existence of KOI-5Ab, an exoplanet that orbits a THREE-STAR SYSTEM. DUDE!!!!



sorry not sorry to do that techbro xkcd ref thing but white beret here is *such* a mood. It makes me cry sometimes, by turns in awe and wonder but also in *fury* that we just sit here and *churn* fighting amongst ourselves over such horribly pointless trivialities


(also sky nukes are sort of a horrible idea)

@nev oh GREAT, now there’s gonna be a cult, aliens will try to colonize us, oh dear.

@nev it would be cool if they named the planet Liu Cixin!
