The dreamy notion that there are planets that orbit two suns is no longer merely an idea drawn from the pages of sci-fi novels. Months after scientists announced that they had found one, San Diego State University says it has discovered two more, and that these eerie worlds may dot the Milky Way.
“We estimate that there are at least millions in our galaxy, but there could be many more than that, maybe tens of even hundreds of millions,” said William Welsh, the SDSU astronomer who led the study that found the gaseous, Saturn-sized planets.
The study -- which focuses on two of the most distant planets ever found -- was published online Wednesday in the journal Nature.
