We don’t often blog real life science stories but this one we couldn’t pass by. It seems a team of astronomers in Hawaii have discovered a brand new pink planet that greatly resembles the mysterious planet Kroma, the setting for Afroellas current adventures and the source of the robot menace. Apparently if you point your telescopes towards the Virgo constellation and look for the bright spot, that is in fact where you’ll find planet Kro…ahem we mean…GJ504b .
Perhaps the greatest news though, with a sun much hotter than ours, we’re going to assume the beaches are amazing!
Now we have no concept of how far 57 light years is but it can’t take any longer than an East Coast Railway journey from London to Leeds (ask Gemma) so pack your bikinis people, let’s all go to GJ 504b
