In this acrylic painting, University of Utah astrophysicist Ben Bromley envisions the view of a double sunset from an uninhabited Earthlike planet orbiting a pair of binary stars. In a new study, Bromley and Scott Kenyon of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory performed mathematical analysis and simulations showing that it is possible for a rocky planet to form around binary stars, like Luke Skywalker’s home planet Tatooine in the “Star Wars” films. So far, NASA’s Kepler space telescope has found only gas-giant planets like Saturn or Neptune orbiting binary stars. More Star Wars ‘Tatooine’-style planets with two suns possible, University of Utah study says

  • FILE - This May 6, 2014 photo courtesy of the Quay County Sun, shows construction crews working on a shaft that will house an intake structure on the south shore of Ute Lake near Logan, N.M. The shaft, is the first phase of the Eastern New Mexico Water Utility Authority’s $550 million Ute pipeline project. The pipeline project intended to bring billions of gallons of water each year to a drought-stricken section of eastern New Mexico represents a lifeline to parched communities.  The lifeline, however, may not actually reach the region for more than a decade before wells dry up, and officials say some areas don’t have that long before wells dry up.
