Star Wars Planet Tatooine Found ~ ANGOL Szövegértés

Érdekes felfedezésről adott hírt ma a világsajtó. Ha szeretitek / láttátok a Star Wars-t, biztosan emlékeztek a Tatooin-ra. Megtalálták! Pontosabban megtalálták az első ilyen típusú bolygót. Nézzük a hírt angolul egy kis feladattal a valóra vált sci fi-ról...

It's a real-life Tatooine. A spectacle made popular by the "Star Wars" saga — a planet with two suns — has now been confirmed in space for the first time, astronomers revealed.

Scientists using NASA's Kepler space telescope captured details of a giant planet.
"This discovery is stunning," said study co-author Alan Boss at the Carnegie Institute in Washington. "Once again, what used to be science fiction has turned into reality." When Tatooine was depicted on film, many scientists doubted that such planets could really exist. Now there's proof.
The newfound planet keeps a distance from its stars nearly three-quarters that of the distance between the Earth and the sun. It is somewhat like Saturn in size, although nearly 50 percent denser, suggesting it is richer in heavy elements. 
This alien world travels on a nearly circular 229-day orbit around its two parent stars, that keep  close to each other. 
Worlds that orbit around two stars, known as circumbinary planets, had been hinted at before. "Now that we know how to detect circumbinary planets, I think we are going to find a lot more rapidly," said on eof the scientists.
